I normally don't favor noon as a time to paint outdoors
because of the white hot sun saturating the ground, not
to mention the incredible heat, but today I thought I'd
give it a shot. It is challenging enough for me to try
and get the essentials down of a scene, and it doesn't
help to have strong gusts of wind battering the easel
while the sun beats down, but perhaps these things
remind me to get the important idea down, fast.
