Another attempt at a landscape using a photo reference. This one is sort of "playful" I think. The tangle of cattails is the main focal point, but they seemed to feel best when I kept them to a loose abstraction of shapes.
It is much more of a struggle for me painting from photos than it is from life. I feel that I want to become more accomplished at it though. Sometimes it is so much more practical than trying to paint from life. It is good to be able to do both I think. So I will continue to practice.
I'm waiting for some Spring flowers and then I will do another still life....will Spring EVER get here??
