I was working on a still life, yesterday late afternoon, and I kept finding myself drawn to look out the window at the wind blown clouds and the changing light. After maybe the tenth time I dragged myself away from the window, I thought, clearly outside is what interests me, I should be painting that. So I grabbed a panel and set up to paint the changing sky--of course, that time of evening, even in the few minutes I took to set up, the sky had drastically changed. I still got this small (8x10") study done, though, before it changed too much to reference further. It was an exciting challenge.
