Plein air Painting at Westfield Park, Chelsea...

It was such a great feeling yesterday when the first rays of the spring sun came up!!

I raced out of the studio to capture the feeling of the warm springlight.

I was so thrilled to go out that I forgot my paints the first time, I had to run back and tell a stranger to stay looking at my set up!

When I finally got down to business it was such a great relief to be painting outdoor again! And now it can only get better!

These are some of the pictures:

Hi Adebanji! Sorry for my bad english! I hope you understand what I try to say you.
I don't understand an important thing. Please, follow me.
I look your work "Spring Morninglight Westfield Park, Chelsea, 10" x 8", Oil on Board", then I look the photograph below, very different in colours, saturaton, and other things. I don't understand how you can do it! What is the magic you use to do that? I think there is a secret that you painters don't want to explain. I spent a lot of time learning how to paint exactly what I see but I don't know how to change colors or other. What is the criterion? Why you decide to do that colour of lawn or of trees? Is it experience, is there a rule or is a secret of you painters and you cannot reveal?

Hi there, while painting this, I tried my best to paint exactly what I saw. If there's a change it must be because I didn't get it right. Also the camera doesn't give an exact intwrpretation of the colours, neither can I. There's no secret, it's just that the human being and the camera are two separate things. One sees in a split second while the other takes in everything, analyses and interpretes and that goes through a long filter(the human process of seeing and the colours at his/her disposal)
Please I hope this helps. If not, I'll try to expand on it a bit more.
