…the same in the fog

Most artists will tell you that gaining experience plein air painting is essential. The insist that experiencing the light when painting out of doors is unmatched. However, I think painting from a boat at anchor is even more challenging. One’s point of reference is always changing even in the most still conditions as the boat gently sways in the currents and tides. And today, my subject went from full sun to thick fog then back to sun again. Quite a challenge!
