My sunset picture hangs just inside the door of the RV. I looked up and saw mother nature was making some suggestions!!

Don't draw more in the morning than you can erase in the afternoon (Old Draughtsman's saying)

Reminds me of last scene in Planet of the Apes movie
The moment you find yourself mostly satisfied with a painting and think you'll "just quickly" do this or that, that's the moment to stop completely. Take the painting off your easel and put it aside for at least 24 hours, then reassess whether it really needs that tweak.

 :heeha: That is so cool Brian! The only critique I've ever had from mother nature was a downpour while on one of my plein air painting w/c slogs!  :2funny:
Cheers, Val
