What a beautiful day today.  I had to force myself to stay inside to work on the painting, but once I got started I was 'lost' to the process of painting and time flew by.  Dipping the brush into the paint, applying the paint to canvas, watching the evolution of the painting becomes completely entertaining.  It is the act of painting, the process that is rewarding.

While standing in front of the easel today, I began to paint in the board on which the figs sit.  Using raw umber, raw sienna, phthalo blue and touches of white the board began to take form.

And when I was done with this, I headed out the door to enjoy this gorgeous day knowing that when I return to the easel I will be refining and adding detail.
