Painting in a fog is different than painting fog.
As all artists know, we have days that feel like we are painting in a fog. Our ideas don't formulate, our compositions don't come together, our values have lost definition and our colors blend into mud. On days like this nothing is clear and our creative process can become almost comatose.
But painting in a fog is the exact opposite of actually trying to paint fog.

Trying to capture the landscape enveloped in fog takes a lot a focus. Color is very subtle, and edges.... forget you ever heard of edges.
