Painting from photos can be a really tough call…so easy to create a warped reproduction. It’s kinda easier to capture the essence of a subject by starting out sketch from life and then referring to photos taken at sitting. But painting from one photo…and capturing the essence, well for me that is one tall order!
I really admire anyone who is able to produce a realistic reproduction seamlessly. Or maybe I just doubt myself way too much…(enough with the whips already…!!). It’s going to be fine…going to take one baby step at a time…(mother, may I?). Yes, you may!! (you can do this!!!! I really need to get over myself)
