Cold and brightPosted: January 16, 2015
Paint in my home studio or go out on a really cold day to paint in my car? The answer this morning seemed obvious. At home I have lots of reference material to paint from, endless cups of tea and central heating. But when it comes down to it, no matter what the weather, I would rather be painting outside. I can’t say this was an easy scene to paint. I had the sun in my eyes which required me to tilt the board at an odd angle to see what I was painting, plus it was very cold and windy with frequent whiteouts. In the end, when given a choice, I would choose a little discomfort and the constantly changing scene in front of me over a photo any day.
