Different View


Karin's original reference photo


5"x 7"
acrylic on masonite

There were two things that I particularly appreciated about the current painting challenge from Karin Jurick's DSFDF. First of all, the reference photo provided a new subject matter with a multitude of cropping options. Using someone else's reference photo gives me the opportunity to see through different eyes and broaden my artistic view.
Secondly, I ended up using a limited palette of colors: cerulean blue, burnt sienna, hansa yellow, a little raw umber, a bit of ultra marine blue and white.

This painting proves what you can do by using a photograph as an inspiration, and not letting the photograph dictate your every brushstroke. Your colors are wonderful, and really make this sparkle! Very, VERY nice.
