Seascape Sunny Day Perspective

'Squint and Compose'

Most people think 'movement' is the thing that's most hard to capture painting outdoors. And it's true. Moving figures, moving cows, moving skies, it's not easy.

But here's a tip:

1) For example, when painting cows, you wouldn't want to add 'the herd' in all at once, rather one cow at a time. It's easier and it will benefit the total more quickly.

2) You can create dots of paint where you would like to add a figure composition-wise), then wait for the right one (color/size) and paint them in.

3) I think it's important to have a strong rhythm of strokes, dots, colors in. See how the total of the painting must benefit from every item's placement and how simplifying shapes can help in creating a strong composition, a strong rhythm of strokes.
