What a world apart from the rough and noisy city where I am at the moment. Painting by the open salt marsh is a kind of quiet meditation. Your mind opens, ready to breathe in all that you can see, hear, smell. To create a good painting you want to absorb everything your senses can discover, and then let the brush ride over the canvas. A successful outdoor painting brings all of the artist’s experience of nature in that moment with the artistic skills refined over time.
I can’t wait to be out there again.
Until next time,
