Recipe for plein air painting

A great recipe for plein air painting; hot sunny weather & legs dangling near a cool waterfall. (forgot to snap a photo of my paintings)
"Sand Dunes" (5x7, oil) was painted right at noon with the sun directly overhead. With such a bright light the value and temperature were greatly compressed to one end of the gray scale.

Geez Susan, how could you actually paint and not just play! I'd say this is one of the most unusual pix of plein aire painting I've ever seen!

Hi Deborah, It may be unusual but don't you think it's the best for a hot hot day
