I've been in the painting doldrums for the entire month of January. However, today I took some pictures and Frankensteined them together into something resembling a reference photo. I had this idea of playing yellows and purples against each other, being complimentary colors. My wife found these beautiful purple flowers that I could play against some sunflowers -- BOOM, a subject is born! I'll pick up a canvas tomorrow, and get the photo printed. I can't wait to paint again!
I've searched ALL my old records for one particular photo I took in 2009. It's here on FAA, but I cannot find my original - from which I already have paper, brush, water, and paper ready to use - I just need to find that stinkin' image to use as my reference.
