    After several of his pastel paintings are shown, landscape painter LeConte Stewart paints an oil landscape out-of-doors.

He talks about repeating the same subject until he is well acquainted with it. He also discusses how painting or drawing outside allows him to capture the light, air and mood of the day on canvas, or on paper, that he can then take into the studio for additional work.
