PLEIN AIR PAINTING MASTERCLASS WITH Rowen matthews

Plein air painting is about leaving the four walls of your studio behind and experiencing painting and drawing in the landscape. The practice goes back for centuries but was truly made into an art form by the French Impressionists. Their desire to paint light and its changing, ephemeral qualities, coupled with the creation of transportable paint tubes and the box easel—the precursor to the plein air easels of today—allowed artists the freedom to paint “en plein air,” which is the French expression for “in the open air.”

This masterclass in Plein Air Painting will be led by Rowen Matthews.  Rowen lives and works in the Liverpool plains of NSW, Australia.

Rowen’s paintings and drawings that look at mountain landscapes with a focus on the temporary activities caused by weather and bigger earth-sculpting changes that take place over time.
