The Sight-Size Method en Plein Air

American Artist had an article by Marc Delassio (Marc Delassio) in its December edition - which is available to download for free - click Marc Delassio - Painting Landscapes in Exact Scale

The sight-size method is incredibly useful for landscape painting as it allows the artist to focus on colors, values, and edges; the shapes one paints seem to take care of themselves.

Can I suggest reading it enlarged on screen as it prints out at half the size of the magazine and unless you have laser like eyes you'll have difficulty reading it!

Marc has also announced a Plein Air Workshop in June, 2010: a 10 day course on using sight-size in plein air painting near Trevi, Umbria.
