'Developing a composition is a continuous flow of ideas, where the artist combines, adds, reduces, adapts and discards the various elements in an unending discovery of new possibilities.' (Alessandra Bitelli)
I painted this scene of the north sea in Holland recently on a rainy morning at the Noordwijk Schilderfest. There is definitely something to be gained painting en plein air, with your feet in the sand, watching the people and their animals walk past, as the sea and the weather roll in. I got this one down fairly simply, just noting the shapes and colours, and not worrying too much with details, just the 'flow'.
