Urca Beach - Oil and sand on panel

People always ask me why do I like so much plein air painting if in the studio it is much more comfortable. Well, I have a lot of answers to that question, short and long ones.
Maybe it´s because I love the unpredictable...
Warm sun, a light breeze...
After one hour of work on composition, first washes and I´m ready for some impasto areas.
Time to stop look and take some pictures.
A not so light breeze and...
Where is the panel?
More texture than I wanted...
A lot of scraping and much of the sand as well as my brushwork is gone.
More observation and one more hour of work...

Rainy Morning- Praça XV

Painting en plein air during summer in Rio de Janeiro is always a surprise. Gnerally we have sunny mornings and heavy showers in the afternoon. But we never know...
This special morning when I started this painting it was cloudy, then a bright sun appeared and later a heavy shower came down. I decided to be consistent with my beginning and kept it cloudy. I like rainy days, cools and warms kind of mix and light is difuse. Fortunatelly I had a shelter under a bridge and could finish it in the site.
