Chuffed - British slang for very pleased. . . . Cool word, don't you think?
If you’re really into this blog, maybe you’re thinking what I’m thinking. . . that the painting is just trying to make its way back to Russia where the photographer known as Viacheslav (PaintMyPhoto) created the reference photo. He solves so many of my sticking points – what to paint, artistic composition, interesting perspective, dramatic lighting, etc. Of course it takes time and effort to find the perfect match, but the photos inspire me to try new things and keep the adventure going.
Seriously, have you ever thought a sink of “dirty dishes” could be art - not just by one, but three different people???? How fun.
'cause we gotta have a pretty picture in every blog, here's one more headed to the show in Waterford VA that I painted a few years ago. An amazing artist allowed me to use his work as a reference and was delighted to help me. Rare for that to happen. Check out Michael Naples.
Seeing these side by side after learning so much, is teaching me even more!
