The flower above is from life, not from a photo.
Too tired to crop it.
This is what the study in the previous post was for.
Acrylic on cradled wood panel
I think 6"x6" for both
You get to see how cluttered my desk gets.
BTW, I guess there are many views about how to paint and draw. I've read so much stuff lately my head is spinning. My loosely drawn out plan is to keep using photos to paint from, but incorporate live painting as well. Painting from photos is teaching me to notice details and copy them.
I have much to learn.
