And then there are difficult days! Today I decided to take my sketch marathon outdoors. I started a different painting three times (scraping it off after each attempt), before turning around and painting a different view. I was finally able to take this one to completion.

I got lucky with this one. Painting outside at this time of year is difficult - my first few attempts at capturing spring greenery usually end in failure. It gets easier over the the course of the summer as the greens become less bright.
