rain and misty weather
'Highland glen' study 10 x 12 inches new masters acrylics by Old Holland.
We had a beautiful day of sunshine yesterday and I went out for a walk in the countryside close to my home. I am lucky to live on the edge of a forest and also farmlands with trees that surround it. I picked some wild flowers too that I brought home with me.
Today as forecast it is a different kind of day! misty and continual rain! the sky is so bright and white. The American landscape painter the late John Carlson who was a teacher of art and painter left us a wonderful landscape book that tells us everything we need to know about landscape painting. One of the things he writes about is that on a dull rainy day the sky is actually lighter and brighter than on a blue sky summers day. I can really appreciate that today as the sky is white with light!
Wishing you all a happy painting day!
