Why Paint Outdoors?

Painting outdoors can really help to improve your painting skills as it makes you look at the landscape you are painting. It will help you to get a better understanding of tones and values in the landscape as well as the chroma of the various colour. Most importantly, plein air painting teaches you to paint quickly as the light and weather conditions are changing and it will give you more confidence in your painting especially in the studio.
