For me, getting out to paint in the cold is 99% a head game. I went out in the middle of a snow squall, convinced I would end up home with nothing to show for the trip. But there was a break in the clouds and I went for it. This little sketch was done along Lake Creek in Edwards. A little fine tuning and I'll call it good.
How do the rest of you get motivated when you know you'll be dealing with your least favorite conditions? What helped me stay out there was setting a time limit, and cranking up the car radio to sing along to the oldies.
oh yes, and the other 1% -...warm boots.
