- We get better at analyzing what is important to us.
- We can nearly finish a painting in our head.
- We can gather information without a brush in our hand.
- We can get the most out of our field studies by comparing them to what we remember: studying, analyzing and deconstructing them---(what we learned at the feet of nature.) This gives us more clarity both in the studio and the next time we go out.
- Clarity saves time and helps to create more powerful paintings.
- We can finish our studies away from the subject better, or if conditions change.
- We won’t let photographs screw up a good start… in most cases we won’t need them, and if we feel that we do, we know how to use them.
- We can also develop our memory of the great paintings we see in museums, and teach ourselves in the same manner as in front of nature.
