If he is as talented as you, I bet your walls bear the weight of many canvasses of photos, water colors, oils, and assorted paints. Only separated by the variety of frames and spaces of wall not yet claimed.

Your description of my walls are rather accurate. He is a talented photographer, but this is the only picture I've drawn from his work, I was looking for inspiration, and needed guidance. Painting purely from the mind. . is hard

Blithe, if you would look through my gallery, you will find both art works and photography. My artworks, to the most, are creations from my photography. However, I work out the composition completely in my head. I may, and usually do, get an idea while looking at pictures here on Caedes. And, then the composition part kicks in as I create the parts of the picture I will need for the final work.

Just remember this thought, art is representative of reality. To what degree is up to you. ~~ John

This John, comes with skill. And I have looked through your galleries, I find most natural artist have an eye for photography.

I have pics solely from my mind, and pics I drew inspiration from and never looked back (akin to what you wrote). I go from rather abstract to attempts at straight line. This pic is by far my most 'ruled' image. usually im a free anti-guidance hippie when it comes to drawing and writing

Good work for your first attempt at oils. I like the textured look of the piece. Agree with you about working directly from the mind being hard.

Painting is an illusion, a piece of magic, so what you see is not what you see. - Philip Guston
