Plein air, a French word, literally translates as 'open air', and is defined as painting or drawing done outside, in the open air. Over 100 years ago, artists made the move from the studio, to painting outdoors en plein air. Artists sketched the landscape in paint to bring forth its full light and color. These works are taken directly from nature, and infused with a feeling of the open air. Today's plein air painters have mastered the art of capturing the changing light on a scene. Bold, painterly strokes and luminous colors define the brilliance of the artists at the 11th annual FRESH PAINT-- Catiri's Art Oasis's Plein Air Festival in Amana, Iowa. FRESH PAINT---A live interpretation of Iowa through the eyes of artists, in the beautiful surroundings of the Amana Colonies. This is an educational experience of seeing the art in process, as well as the appreciation of Iowa through the eyes of the artist capturing the moment.
