Very cool.

The last piece he does, where you can see the light and shadow changing because of the clouds, is a big part of why I only ever work from pictures. I don’t understand how people work in plein aire.

You should try it Sobek. You may find that your eye is more free to choose the effects it prefers.

I thought Sobek’s comment made a lot of sense until I read lauraw’s.
They both make sense.
We (used to) have a big plein aire event around here. It was fun to walk around and see everyone’s paintings.

I just bought Mrs. Geezer 3 paint-by-numbers paintings. Remember those?
My mom did one of Notre Dame that I remember vividly.
Bet you didn’t know you can get Custom PBN kits made from your photograph, some of them are pretty good:

Excellent suggestion RG!

I’m tempted to give it a whirl.
