My third painting finished...and the first by just looking at a scene in front of me. The challenge lay in the fact that it took me three days to paint while I was at the beach. During that time obviously the weather and subsequent clouds changed dramatically. I had to work towards an impression of the scene (I guess that's why it's called impressionism) something that I have always tried to do with my photography, although often having to settle for the specific moment. This allows me to portray what I want.
