I painted along McCormick Road on Sunday morning.
It was great to be out but I realized I had not done this kind of painting from observation in a long time and was feeling like I couldn't concentrate due to the cold. The forecast was 40 degrees...they were wrong...I was unprepared and my feet were frozen.
Perhaps the gloves, cold conditions, and stiff paint consistency led to the looseness of this painting.
