There is a certain magic that happens when you go outside to paint on a beautiful day.  When I do it... well somehow the air and atmosphere affect the color choices in an interesting way.  Take this example from a few weeks ago- the painting I did is so much more bright than the photographs of the scene.  It just FELT like such a bright sunny morning.  The air was so light and clear.  

The first rough sketch in
The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things,
but their inward significance.

And it is all even more fun with a painting buddy- thanks Charlene!
