These woods are on the other side of a small lake near where I work. It's about a half hour walk to get to them. I wasn't sure if I would find anything worth painting when I started walking, but it was a nice day so I went. By the time I got to the other side of the lake it was overcast. I didn't have time to go anywhere else as it was late afternoon and I was rapidly loosing what crummy light I had. I went ahead and painted these sort of gloomy woods anyhow. I'm glad I did.
