Finland is warming up finally after a long winter, so I’m taking my paints outside and enjoying the first rays of the year while I capture some color notes from around.
I have been painting outside this year since the beginning on April. That’s when I learned more than I have in a while. I was so uncomfortable and had almost no control over the paint because it was so cold, that it wouldn’t dry. Because of this I used large strokes that I had to commit to, and wasn’t trying to paint small details. It made a huge difference to my work which I was able to bring into my digital work too. 🙂
Let me show you my favourite spot to paint and share some thoughts! I believe it’s going to be a great summer, hope for you too!
Here are my paintings from this April:
