I think I got close to ‘finished’ with the painting of Robert today.
What I discovered with this painting, and the one of Graham, is that photos taken in bright sunlight can be ideal sources for paintings. My thinking has been going the other way; that I had to set up lights and situation to control the environment to get the best results for painting.
I also think I’m progressing closer to my goal of getting a looser feel in my work. But that’s the problem with being your own teacher . . . . are you grading fairly?
