Remember that Matisse said “accuracy is not truth”.  "It’s impossible to convey the sparkling of snow, the burning goldenness of fall, the light spots on leaves or a birch tree’s whiteness without adornment.  At the same time, though, as plein air painters learn, this can be expressed in metaphysical terms as the penetration of the location’s substance.  It’s realizing the beauty of the landscape’s specific features and endeavoring to preserve it for all time,” he says.  “The most important part of working from life is the portrayal of colors in correlation with the site’s general atmosphere.”
