Started this on location, but was not able to get back and had to finish in the studio. There is so much controversy going on about painting and finishing on location. Painting from photos are so necessary at times, not a favorite of mine. But truth be told, I really need to have some form of reference to work from without the guilt of using photo's. I know that is silly, there are so many great artist out there that rely on photo's. Maybe a balance is the best way to go., paint from life and photo references. I know there are places that Mike and I will never be able to see, so why not use the free photos. Oh, don't mind me, maybe another cup of coffee is needed. Happy Painting Everyone.
