Remember the 'inner child' ?



Many of you just starting to paint outdoors, mention that you can't find the time to do plein air painting as much as you would like to.

Like anything else, painting outdoors has a learning curve and eventually you learn to paint more quickly and so finding time to paint might become easier.

In the meantime, remember that inner child and the feeling when you got a brand new box of crayons ? Give yourself a new set and a sketchbook and keep it handy to doodle and play - no serious stuff here.

The next time you get a chance to paint outdoors, it'll be more like play than serious work.
