There are few things more pleasurable than sitting quietly in nature, looking at a view with a paint box in your lap and your favourite brushes or pencils in hand. It really gets you soaking up the atmosphere and there’s no better way to charge your senses!It is also excellent practice and discipline. Being on location, with the sun, the clouds, the wind and rain force you to use all your powers of observation and to be in the moment.Your sketchbooks, and the moments you capture can be a great source of inspiration for future paintings or simply a reminder of the places you’ve visited.
