“Two months in Europe and my paint box was on fire. Studies were done in Holland, Germany and Ireland before a final dedicated week of painting was spent in Venice.”

Leon Holmes is an award-winning Australian artist, lecturer and ambassador of plein air (open air) painting. “If you want to have life in your painting, you need to paint it from life,” he said. “To capture the true light, the true colour, you need to be immersed in the scene, and to become part of it. That’s why I think it’s so important to paint en plein air (in the open air).”
