But the crux of any painter's desires, is to meet those desires and meet the landscape head on. Is a painter satisfied with a painting because it met the desire or met the landscape's visual image?
Be aware that this is every painter's dilemma.
We have five senses, don't limit you work to the visual only.

I painted this Fall. What is the difference from the Green Mountains to Western mountains? Elevation is important and that alone changes the color of mountains besides the northern latitude creates low light year round. Color is affected by space. Color is space and each space is a different color. We are learning so much about color from science and painters can show these nuanced color changes to depict space, elevation and latitude. Happy New Year!

What I love is the rock and snow covered peaks so I stick with what excites me. Ever do a painting and it bored you? Its not the painting but your interest in the subject matter. Keep painting what you love!

If we were to ask a scientist: a color specialist in what attracts the human eye, what would they say? They would say it is the warm yellow orange color!
What is your answer now? Do you believe science? Painters can paint outside of the box, but can viewers see outside the box?

Get ready for Spring! It's not too early to practice Spring colors in the studio and how you want to scale the image on canvas or paper. Try out warm reds and cool reds to understand the range of pinks that you can make. All this practice makes painting in the field easier!
