Look at the world around you and take note of how things work visually.
What color is the object?
What shape is the object?
How does the light hit an object?
Is it strong? Is it filtered and subdued?
What is the color of the object in light and in shadow?
How does the lighting shape an object?
What mood does it create?
What does the sky look like during certain times of the year?
Does the lighting of summer look different than winter lighting on an object?
What makes it different?
There are so many questions to ask yourself when trying to visually describe an object or a setting.
You don’t need to entertain yourself with electronics.
You can keep yourself busy just with reflecting on what makes something the way it is
and how you would paint it.
