Outdoor Painting

Painting 'en plein air' is a great way to take your painting practice outside the sometimes stuffy conditions of the studio - literally meaning to paint in the open air. Unfortunately the weather can be a little unpredictable in the UK - making it all the more important to stock up on your plein air painting supplies so you're ready to go when the sun comes out!

It is up to you what you take out with you, but we have put together some recommendations of art materials perfect for the job. Read our blog for Sky Arts Landscape finalist Greg Mason’s top tips for Plein Air Painting.
