Rain or Shine

Motivate Yourself With 'Projects'

When you create a 'project' for yourself, it's easier to go out, and be motivated to paint 'Rain or Shine', thus painting a lot and having a great time doing so.

There's no "What will I do today, will I paint something somewhere today?", because you have clear (numbered/timed?) goals.

I wanted to paint cows several weeks in a row during the first run of '50-Days-Pleinair Mastery'. All weather delivers, yes, no need to wait for 'perfect' circumstances because you'll miss out on a lot. It was a rainy day. Sometimes a grey sky can make an otherwise-skipped-over-view beautiful.

Here the greens sing because of the sky connecting to the far away, because of those values coming so close.
I think this shows also how movement is important in a painting, gained with a brush mostly I think. Knife and brush. The best combo. All parts intertwine.

Cold! Still Spring here. Even the winter coat didn't do it, frozen fingers.
But yes, persist. Pursuit. Proceed. Finish : )
