Weather Woes

Daisy & Roses, 5 x 7

What do plein air painters do when weather doesn't cooporate? Painting from photos is one good option, especially if you have the plein air painting done on location and also took a photo of the scene. I find painting a larger studio piece works best if I have both a photo and small study to reference.

I find winter is also a great time to explore subject matter a bit out of my comfort zone. Ultimately, it is all about the mileage. Flower still lifes are difficult to execute. Especially with a loose style like mine.
