I firmly believe in and practice being unattached to the result in the painting process. Sometimes my approach gets a little natural assistance. Forecast had said sun for the afternoon. I figured the fog would just keep lifting. I was wrong. In fact, I was so lost in the landscape and painting process I didn't even notice we were going to have a problem until big drops of mist stilled on my almost finished painting sketch. I couldn't have achieved these results even if I had tried.
