I’ve been painting some still lifes lately and am really enjoying doing them. They too are “painted from life”, but without the hassle of dragging your equipment outdoors and dealing with the elements, bugs and changing light during the plein aire painting process.
Painting from life is so important, as you see much nuance of color, light, shadow and depth that is lost in a photograph, even with today’s great technology.
Tangerines and Sunflowers is an oil, 12×16.
