Well, yes. In fact every weekend when the weather is good, I paint out side of our house. Though, it may be difficult to carry our tools. We need to carry paints, easels, frames, brushes, papers and painting surface, etc. We need to maximize the space of our pack bags. But I love to paint outside since it's only then that I can wonder the real beauty of nature and the effect of the natural light which I really like. Although, I admit that I need to be quick when painting since the atmosphere changes constantly. Lol So do you paint outdoors? and why?

How wonderful to be able to enjoy such talent. I am not very artistic. So I do not paint. Unless you count re-painting old furniture in the yard to escape the fumes. My husband recently bought me a wonderful wooden bench. I put it in the front yard. I sit there at times with my eyes closed. I listen to the birds, feel the warm sun on my face. Or the cool breeze. Depending on the weather. The smell of my neighbors plants and flowers can be soothing. So I may not be able to paint it, but I can enjoy the outdoor world and commit it to memory.

Well, that's great atleast you appreciate the beauty of nature. But, I say that everyone can be an artist and it's not about talents rather it's about how you interpret your sincere emotion to your viewers. Thank you for your response, enjoy the gift of GOD.

As I'm a professional designer it becomes necessary for me to draw and paint out doors as it gives better details than the best photographic reproduction
