I enjoy new painting experiences
and may be able to paint from a favorite photo you have taken.
I usually take several digital photos of
a subject before drawing the composition,
but when that is not possible, one
good photo may be enough to capture the subject.
It is best to take photos without
flash, but with one good light source.
The natural shadows help me to
see dimension and contours
for a more lifelike painting.
