I have started a 31 day challenge to paint from life every day in January. So far I have made 2 days; first day in snow. I completely loved painting this wonderful winter landscape and felt I learned so much in just one day outside in winter, my first experience in the cold of winter. The magnificent colors and light reflections, shadows of brilliance. I think I may be hooked on this new adventure. Yesterday a still life, I spent way too much time on this and know I need to limit my time and use it as an exercise and discipline to just paint.
