So I can bemoan it or embrace it for the quiet creative time it presents.
I"m doing both. I'm looking at the plein air sketches from this fall and working up larger studio pieces for the 2019 art fair season.
Plein air can be a challenge. For me it's best to think when going out in nature, "this is just a sketch to observe the natural world around me, not a time to create a final framable piece."
This plein air sketch, I think, works well. Good compositional movement and good observation of color.
