Memory & Painting

Many of you may be familiar with James Gurney's blog where many interesting posts about plein air painting can be found.  Mr. Gurney is the author of the famous Dinotopia books and regularly paints outdoors using watercolor, gouache and oil.  He has at least a couple DVD downloads on plein air painting with watercolor and gouache and wrote an excellent book "Color and Light - A Guide for the Realist Painter".  One recent blog post was a commentary on "Visual Memory" from Harold Speed's 1917 classic  The Practice and Science of Drawing.  I found the remarks about memory and plein air painting especially interesting and worth pondering.  You can read the post at the link below.
