Top 5 Reasons Why Fall is the Best Time to Make Art
Let’s Make a Case for Fall!
We at Jerry’s Artarama get pretty excited this time of year. Art lovers across the country should know that Fall is the best time for Art. Outside, a crisp breeze is blowing and the leaves are turning the best colors. For of each of us, it’s time for us to get excited as artists, because as we all know, Fall is the best time for art!
1. No Sweat on your Palette
Right now is the perfect time to get outdoors and paint en Plein Air. For once you don’t have to worry about the heat and you can paint without the sun being too bright, the air being too cold like in Winter and the air is crisp unlike in Spring when it is full of pollen. And you can carry less water with you, either for drinking in the heat or misting your paints. It is objectively the best time to paint outside.
2. Break Out the Colors
Here on the east coast, people flock for hundreds of miles to see the leaves change in the northeast, Smokey Mountain National Park and Shenandoah National Park. People love the colors. They are rich and bright and beautiful this time of year. So why not pull out your reds, yellows, and siennas and start painting.
