Wildfires are burning in Banff and the air is hazy but this does not stop us from going out painting. In fact the haze lends a wonderful atmospheric effect.
That wind gust, though: full of sand and ashes and whatever else the fast wind can pick up. Too much debris to remove completely. Guess it'll just have to dry in the paint layer; I'll call it "natural provenance".
