I love looking at this tree surrounded house, those trees provide different combinations of color for each season. Yesterday around sunrise it was the pinkish southern sky above the house that caught my attention. I sketched right away trying to capture its beauty. The colors changed as I sketched. I began with the sky, then worked my way down. By the time I painted those in front of the house It was already in the bright day light, therefore the color was bright also. I guess this is the big problem with painting plein air.
