From about a year ago ...
My PP skills hopefully have improved since then, maybe I should revisit it. My favorite part of the sooc ... is his lime green shoes, his high dollar easel attachment (bag) and the roll of paper towels. I watched him work for about 20 minutes and we chatted for about 10 or so.

What makes you say that?
The painter was standing there for many hours (or multiple days) throughout the day working on his rendering. I'd at least give credence to the notion that he was showing you what you missed because you weren't there when it occurred. So, is he being "fake" for putting there what you don't see now, or being "real" at showing you what you missed? And, even if those were the clouds in the sky from yesterday ... it still fairly represents the scene, to communicate its message, imo.
I have no way of knowing what he saw earlier throughout the day, so for me ... it is totally plausible AND integral ... at least his painting anyway.
Ahh, time dependency is another element in addition to place. Is reality what you see in a microsecond or a blend of minutes, hours days, years?
If I open my shutter for 30 seconds on a dark night and capture light the eye never sees, is that an alteration of reality?
I think these questions only have opinions for answers.
