Original oil artwork painted by Sally West en plein air.
Plein-Air (in the open air) refers to the practice of painting outdoors, in direct engagement with nature.
Many of the traditional Australian plein air paintings were referred to as “9 by 5s”, as they were often painted on compact and manageable 9inch x 5inch cigar box lids provided by Abrahams whose family imported cigars.
In an attempt to honour this fine Australian tradition, throughout the year Sally West has visited many beautiful locations to paint, she has expanded the series to include an A4 size to compliment every interior. The experience of painting en plein air really allows the artist to capture something more than just the landscape, including the light and atmosphere of the day into the work.
These paintings are mounted and ready to frame with a total size of 39 x 47cm.
