When the son of George Inness describes his father he says,"Out of doors he was quiet, rational and absorbed. I have seen him in the same spot everyday for a week or more studying carefully and minutely the contours of trees and the compositions of the clouds and grass. He seldom painted from nature He would study for days and then go at a canvas with the most dynamic energy."
The point is to notice. To absorb all that you see and then it becomes part of you. No cameras, no sketchbooks. I have done many memory type paintings, before, when I have forgotten my camera. Now it will be an intention. 3 memory paintings a week...small. and yes, lots of sitting and watching.
