...actually, unless it's freezing or raining, painting on a gray day can be a quite pleasant experience. Because the light is consistant, there's no need to "chase the sun." Values changes are subtle; colors softer, and you can paint at a liesurely pace. This painting took about 1-1/2 hrs. to do. There was a light mist in the air, interupted by flocks of geese overhead. At one point I saw a beautiful sienna fox, casually lopeing across a field, beyond the garden. All in all; a very gentle Christmas afternoon, doing what I love.
