Watch this painting video if you've wanted to try plein air painting.

From Krokart

This video shows an artist painting plein air on a street in San Miguel de Allende in Mexico. If you've ever wondered what it's like painting outdoors, whether people would bother you or not, take a look at this video. (Keep your eyes open for the person bringing the artist a cup of tea!) The action is speeded up, making the passing cars sound like electric toys. There's no narration, but it doesn't need it. The painting speaks for itself as it develops.
