I spend a lot of time looking for nice places to paint but if I have a few hours to spare and a tight schedule I often just go out into my yard and set up. I do have the advantage of having a large wooded lot with a stream and nice garden so It’s not a chore to find a good spot.
This last Friday I set up in the backyard and composed this view looking through to the neighboring yard. At close to 100° It was a bit warm and the paint was drying as I put in on the canvas but in the end, it helped with the humid, hot look of this 9 x 12. 95° in the shade
