Diane Dubreuil, IPAP


I paint on location out-of-doors as much as possible. The French term 'en plein air' is often used to describe outdoor painting. I mostly paint with transparent watercolor as a medium. A successful painting is always a challenge, especially in New England, where the weather tends to be less predictable and the seasons refresh us with a new palette of colors. For a watercolorist, humidity (rain especially) can be a tough factor to deal with. Most of my ‘en plein air’ paintings are done in a couple hours because the light or weather changes so drastically.

More predictably, en plein air painting is a great communication device. Passers by watch me paint, then often ask me, “How long have you been painting?” They tell me their stories and we're happy, enjoying the time together.
