Plein air painting (Open air painting)

As the designation implies, painting created in the open air, as opposed to the studio. This genre of painting made its breakthrough in the 1870s, when the Impressionists wanted to get as close to nature as possible. Light and shadows could be recorded immediately and transferred directly on to the canvas.
