Working from a Photograph – Acrylic Painting

Yesterday I presented you with my painting of Soar Cove in England.

As it was painted from a photograph I thought I should show you the photo as well.

Comparing the two you will notice that I did not aim for a direct copy but went for my own interpretation of the scene. I decided to start with a free-hand sketch rather than try the other tricks of the trade. After all if I wanted a copy of the photo it would have been much quicker to have it printed.

There is a website which will give you information of how best to work from a photograph.
