For a change, I went to Field Farm yesterday morning to paint. The trees screen the background, but I was still looking in the direction of the Hopper, which is far behind on the left. I wanted to paint some flying tree limbs. I've been reading David Curtis's book, Painting on Location, in which he recommends using worn brushes for effect. Most of my brushes fit his description. I've got some new ones on the way to mix it up a bit.
