Plein Air October

October can be the best month for painting,

THAT IS IF YOU PICK THE BEST DAYS!!!

This week I painted plein air on a day with the sun shining and
temperatures in the 80's.....then today,

it was a different time, partly cloudy and temperatures in the
mid 40's at the start of the day.

It is important to keep that easel packed and ready to go
so that you can take advantage of the beautiful day when
it happens.
Our color is just past peak so we try to grab all the color that is left to paint this month.
It won't be long before we will have a lot fewer days we can capture the lovely color
on site to paint in relative comfort.  It is always to capture the changing light since
the angle of the sun has really changed and the days with good painting light is less
than during the summer season.

Enjoy the autumn season!
