important words to remember

I was looking through my sketchbook yesterday and found one message I had written.
"We make paintings not see them."
Remember that when you go  out to paint. As artists we move parts of the landscape, erase others, heighten color, and subdue color. We are in charge.
It helps to turn away from your scene part way during your painting time to simply work with the painting not the scene.

So many buttercup scenes in the last week. Same scene many for the next post for more.
