It’s easy to see why plein air painters are drawn to dramatic waterfalls, majestic mountains, and wide-open skies. But the urban landscape holds its own charms. Here, eight artists reveal eight different takes on the city. From back alleys to busy intersections, views from high above to deep beneath, these diverse paintings share a unique energy, the feeling that anything could happen next — and whatever it is, we can’t wait.
