    Plein Air means sitting in front the the object you are painting so you are painting directly from the object. This shows my set up in the farm at the Kuerner Farm in Chadds Ford.

I painted the Betsy Ross House sitting on my stool at the curb across from this historic property as trucks and cars  passed by.  Couples from New Zealand and France stopped to chat as I painted.  It was a special plein air experience.
 
 
This is called steps to N.C Wyeth studio.  You can see it through the trees up the hill.  I sat next to the back door of N.C Wyeth home to paint this.  
What a treat is was to paint during our ON LOCATION EVENT on the properties of the Brandywine River Museum. 
 
 
This is the Kuerner Farmhouse.  I sat in the hay field facing the house.   While I pianted, red tail hawks flew overhead sreaching away and tne the blue sky reminded me hwo blessed I was to be able to paint
here where Andrew Wyeth painted for 7 decades.
You have to come see the farmstead and enjoy this fantastic location and take the tour.
