Painter's Tip

Travel Opportunities

When traveling, be prepared for painting opportunities. Take your camera with you and go off the beaten path. You will see all kinds of potential paintings. Take a sketchbook and a journal with you to record ideas for paintings back in your studio. Be sure to take notes on atmospheric conditions, lighting directions, ambient lighting, color temperature and local color. These sketches and notes, along with a few reference photos will round out your information about a scene, architecture or portrait of a subject you run into on the road. Don't rely on your memory alone.
