Outdoor Painting

I love to paint outside because you have to see it to paint it. Yesterday I went to Isles of Capri, a teeny village with a fish house and some restaurants and some beautiful scenery. After much reconoitering, I finally set up and proceeded to block in this little painting. I fought my way through for about 90 minutes because the wind was strong and I had to use one hand to hold onto my box, leaving only one hand to paint with. Well, you need two. You have to wipe the brush etc.. My towels were blowing away and I just finally packed it up after I felt I'd gotten a good sketch and finished it in the studio.

OH,Mary I LOVE it! WOWIE! You nailed it. Yes, get a shot without the glare (the curse of oil paint) and edit it. It's lively, colorful and sweet. GO girl!
