Re: Why paint the same scene again & again

Agreed. I recently did three paintings from the same vantage point on a deck overlooking a lake. All were done in late afternoon or evening on three different days. I would love to return and paint mornings, midday, rain, sun, and winter. So much to learn from one simple view.

Re: Why paint the same scene again & again

Dave,

Yes. Everything changes at different times of the day. But even if we paint the same scene at the same time of the day & under similar weather conditions, we'll most likely see differences. And isn't that the idea - to see and paint it?

Re: Why paint the same scene again & again

Right on, Michele. I think Claude Monet answered this question very well with his haystack series.
