I spent two and a half days drawing and painting my container garden in the corner of our patio. It's so convienent painting in your back yard-can spend a lot of time without setting up and taking down. The first day I drew the composition. The second day, I got up early, 7:30 AM and waited for the sun to peek around the corner of the house. Then came the race to catch the sunlight before the trees got in the way. Luckily, the weather remained the same the next day and I was able to catch similar light conditions.
