Painting Plein Aire and how colour influences us

Artist Mary Rose Holmes is cheerfully dressed for painting today

As our collectors and friends know, we  paint en plein air and we love fashion and colour.
Living on the barrier islands here on Florida's Gulf coast provides us with intense colour at certain times of the year.    This is one such day.   In looking at these images we have a question.  Does the colour we wear and the the hearts we meet influence our paintings?
