Now with spring here I really feel like getting out into the wilderness again. As an artist I need to get out doors and experience nature . I feel that drawing directly from nature has a good influence on drawings and can put more life into paintings as well. Im gathering up some extra art gear at the moment so I can get painting out doors more easily, should be lots of fun. There will be the weather to contend with but Ive already been through an 80 knot blizzard ,so hopefully it won’t get much worse than that.
