Ob­serve and plan your paint­ing ses­sion

ImagineFX - - In Depth Plein Air Painting -

Think and study be­fore you paint. Frame the scene with your hands. Don’t try to in­clude too much – fo­cus on what you’re most vis­ually ex­cited about. Here, I’m en­joy­ing the win­dow view of the lit tower peek­ing through the shad­owed midground wall of trees, while the bench guy in sun­light pro­vides a strong sec­ondary fo­cus. Be­fore I start, I take a pic­ture so I can re­fer back to this light­ing later.
