‘Scattered Thunder Storms – PM’ , that is the daily forecast. Last week, this week, and most likely for the next month. Tropical storms.
Now, we do check the weather all the time. More then we need but since it’s always the same I look, and promptly forget. Not like I don’t know what it’s going to be.
Besides when the storm does come, it makes a statement.
Great photo ops if you are in the right spot, and have the right gear.
I’ve decided that I need to slow down a little with my plein air paintings. I feel so rushed to produce a whole painting start to finish in one session, it’s a little overwhelming and I think my paintings look rushed. So I’m going to try to go back to the same location several times and allow the painting to progress more slowly, and try to develop some of the elements more. Here’s the start for today’s painting. I feel like this approach will take the pressure off some.
And I’m trying out a red underpainting.
I run by this tree every time I run down to the greenbelt. 🏃🏃🏃🏃
