Another painting in the dreary weather that I am very happy to have done. Actually, there are a few beneftis of painting in overcast conditions, in my opinion: 1. the light doesn't change much at all, so there's no chasing of it; 2. you don't have to worry about finding shade, for you or your painting; and 3. you don't have to worry about warm vs. cool - it's pretty much all cool.
Some of you have suggested I do some still lifes or interiors, and I would really love to, but the mineral spirits I have are too stinky to use inside. I looked for Gamsol at an art store in Freiberg, but they had never heard of it. Alas.
