Plein Air Challenge: Day 12
I've been trying to think about a goal or concept I want from my daily piece before I go out each morning. Of course, that doesn't always work. Often what I decide to do and what I thought I wanted to do are two different things. But today it worked. After painting so many cloudy gray days in a row with nothing but green, I really wanted to focus on finding the variety in the color I see. I pushed the sky just a little more violet, and also pushed the warmer grays in the water. It's interesting that just a little pushing toward cool or warm without getting into intense color can really make a difference.
