A few notes and tips on painting outside, in the nature. First, I finally learned that linen panels I make myself, using "claessens linen" is the absolute best! My winning piece, which I painted first on the first day of paint was painted on such panel and it felt so easy. I couldn't attain that sensation with any other panels or canvases. Number two - avoid painting a brightly sunlit scene if you are in the deep shade, and you don't have an ambient light around you. Note, it doesn't concern umbrellas - you still can use it successfully without painting your piece too dark.
Here is my little collection submitted to the jury of Plein air invitational "Paint The Peninsula 2014"
