Time Lapse Video | Painting En Plein Air in Fiordland National Park, New Zealand
This is a speeded up video of me painting a landscape, outdoors en plein air in Fiordland National Park, New Zealand.
Painting outdoors is known as painting 'en plein air', a French term for painting outside. I love painting outdoors especially when I get to visit some epic locations within New Zealand.
In this speeded up video I painted a view of Mt Talbot and Mt Crosscut in Fiordland National Park. This is one of my favourite places to paint outdoors and one of my favourite views to paint.
I have painted this view many time and I have done several studio paintings of this scene.
Painting en plein air is a great way of really capturing the atmosphere and mystique of a location. For me, my plein air paintings are becoming like a diary of my life...but in paintings.
Whilst my studio paintings are detailed my plein air painting is much more loose gestural, a style that painting outdoors lends itself so well.
