I love painting by the river on this type of day. It's overcast, which keeps the heat down, and there's just enough air moving. I painted this as a quick block in with my class, very washy, intending to add more definition in the sky later. As often happens when students are scattered about, I don't spend much time at my own easel. The painting was tucked away in my "Look at this again later" pile.
By the way I highly recommend several piles of work aside from "Finished" and "Unfinished" in your studio. I have "Just off the easel, look objectively over the next couple of days", "Use as a study for something larger", and "Not a complete success, why?", among others. Looking at "Overcast" recently, I decided to leave it alone. I can feel the air that day when I look at painting. That works for me.
