Two things to know about plein air painters:

  1.  We get so absorbed in what we are doing that we don’t pay attention to other things around us… (like mile high cliffs behind us)
  2. We often step backwards blindly to see how the painting compares to the view.

Fortunately no painters were harmed in the making of this painting.  : )
