Stefan Baumann Mt Shasta in Moonlight
Painting on location is difficult enough, but painting on location at night offers a new set of issues that challenge even the most skilled plein air artists. First of all, seeing your painting and palette in the dark can be difficult, but with the new LED light that straps on your head, you can actually see what you are doing. You can see whatever you look at – your painting, your palette, and your brush strokes. Secondly, many animals rustle in the bushes (including bears) who are hungry, and they feed at night. Be careful that you are not on their menu. It is best to paint with a friend when you paint outside at night.
