It can be very taxing to create a street painting, especially in hot weather. When the ambient temperature goes up, so does the heat on the pavement. This can not only be strenuous but dangerous. Hats, sunscreen and plenty of water are a must; I usually work under an umbrella when possible for hot climates. Street painting is very physical as you are forced to work in awkward seated or squatting positions most of the time. I recommend yoga, stretching and good core strength to help ease the pain of a sore lower back, stiff shoulders and achy legs. Massages, saunas and hot baths really help too!
