I had a good time working en plein air today. My only frustration (as always) comes when I photograph my work.
I've thought a lot about the detriments of digital photography and I honestly feel like I'll eventually get to the point where I never photograph my work. I see photography as a good tool to send rough approximations in the same way a recording of music can be enjoyable, but the color and mood of the painting cannot be captured in a photo. For my website, I consider photos as more of a visual catalogue, but they are in no way meant to simulate the original painting.
