En Plein Air Watercolors

The technique of “en plein air” is a french expression which means “in the open air” and is used to describe the act of painting outdoors. Tom Tompson and the Group of Seven are examples of  en plein air advocates, as are many painters from the Banff area over the last century. Ian Brown of the Globe and Mail comments that Alex Emond’s painting is “the work of a private and personal practice”. Taking on the challenges of painting in the rugged expanse of Banff National Park, Alex has spent cumulative years capturing the changing light, the grandeur and the mystery of the world around him.
