Today I'm writing the first of a series of articles for The Artist magazine.
It is all about working 'plein air' which is the French term for 'outdoors' particularly in reference for painting.
Of course my home town of Newlyn is well known for the celebrated Newlyn School who were masters of the plein air technique, so it's not too difficult for me to find inspiration.
The image shown is one of my own plein air attempts, made at Dungenes.

I love the writing process, always have done, but does anyone know the plural for 'plein air'?
