My fingers are crossed for more sunshine. I'm suppose to head out tomorrow for my first day of plein air paintings. I'm a little intimidated, to say the least. The first assignment is basically - go forth and paint! Great. So I asked if he could give some insight into how he chooses a location. Does he look for lighting, color? How does he explore a city that is new to him? He told me - get out there, and when you see something that grabs you - paint it! Sigh. I LIKE structure and direction. But this will be good for me, I know it. As much as it is looking like I will start kicking and screaming about the process, I have a feeling I'm going to come out on the far end of this class absolutely loving it and cityscape.
