Levi Nelson is sharing some of his recent school projects, as he takes a “plein air” painting class with artist Damian Moppett.

As Nelson explains, Plein Air painting is the traditional method of painting landscapes out in the wild. It has its challenges, like weather and hauling equipment, and learning to move gracefully through the woods while your french box easel clunks around.
