PLEIN AIR WATERCOLORS

MATTHEW DAUB

The term plein air is derived from the French and is used to describe painting done outdoors on location. Although it is sometimes associated with Impressionism, plein air painting does not conform to any single style, subject, approach, or philosophy. The paintings in this gallery were all painted in Italy where the artist spends part of every summer. Matthew and his wife, Barbara, were the directors of Arts Sojourn, an Italian art/travel program they ran for over twenty years.
 

 “Although my professional focus has always been on my studio work, I am also an avid plein air painter. For me there is nothing more honest or liberating than to stand in front of my subject without any pre-conceived notions about art making. I use plein air painting simply as a means of experiencing and appreciating my surroundings.”
