This was painted en plein aire. I know that it is a still life, but would it also be considered a plein aire?
16"x20" oil on canvas

Beautiful work Cherie.
To me this style is very evocative of the 1920's.

I would certainly consider it a plein air---you don't see that kind of lighting indoors. It's beautiful.

Really lovely Cherie!!!

Cherie, this is beautiful! And, in my view, anytime you're dealing with changing outdoor lighting conditions, that's plein air. So, a portrait, a still life, a human figure, or more ordinarily a landscape-- all can be plein air. This is the right forum for this piece! :)

When painted outside in the open air....or from a lighted window...its plein air to me! I love your subject and the lighting is great. This gives me some ideas about painting on my deck when its too hot for the gardens!

Cherie, This is a wonderful piece. Clean colors- vibrant and alive.
En plein air literally translates to "in the open air", so it doesn't matter "what" you paint, as long as it's in the outdoors.

So, it is a plein aire. Great!
I have been thinking about toning down the bright background. Can't make up my mind......what do you think?
