Sunset on Lake G 18"x24" framed
Am back from San Antonio and decided to do a larger painting. Decided it needed to be dramatic so loved the lighting in this photo. After some re shuffling of shapes and placement of light--it has made a decent painting. I never just copy a photo although I often try to capture the mood and colors--always keeping in mind that photo shadows tend to be flat and you must create your own focal ponit. The camera has no focal point--it simply records everything equally.
