El Sol del Membrillo

As promised, here is an excerpt from Victor Erice's The Quince Tree Sun (aka Dream of Light), a film about Antonio López Garcia painting a quince tree in the studio of his courtyard. You don't really need any subtitles but my favorite quote from the film is when López Garcia is asked about the work. He says exactly what I feel about painting in nature, "The best part is being close to the tree".
