I paint from sketches on site in addition to photos I take on my hikes around the islands. I never paint directly from photos, there are always things to move around and improve on to make a good compositionand to change the light.
These are beautiful pastel paintings. The one with a window is amazing. You have worked so beautifully with all the colors. This Christmas I presented one pastel painting from photo to one of my friend which i ordered from https://www.portraitsondemand.com/ . Wanted to know if you paint from photo?
