If this is the area around your house, then I envy you, Sharon :) Although I don't exactly live in an urban jungle, I wish the scenery around my place was this picturesque. Then I'd probably be more motivated to do more plein air landscape painting than I already do. Oh, and I was wondering, how much drawing you do before you actually apply paint to your canvas? Because it looks as though you start throwing on paint without having much drawing on the canvas. I ask because I'm predominantly a draftsman, and it still doesn't quite feel natural for me to start a painting without doing at least a light sketch on the canvas before applying paint...
Yes, I'm the first one to admit that I should take more care with my drawing than I do. I do tend to just rush in and start throwing down paint, especially if the light is changing quickly. I end up with more studies that I'm happy with if I slow down enough to do a sketch. If I ever decide to get serious about my painting, I'll hopefully approach it in a more disciplined way. I know, I should start now! Ok, maybe I'll start my next time out. :) --Sharon
Haha, glad to know that I've inspired you to do so :) On the other hand, perhaps I should let up once in a while and just go in with paint straight away. Oh, and for someone who isn't "serious" about her painting, you have an astonishingly large body of work! :) -Sarfo
