artistic conversions

I thought you might be interested in seeing how photography inspires me. I am not good at painting from memory or fantasy, but I do enjoy enhancing and changing the colors of real things in my paintings. Here is an example of a smoky pumpkin which I found beautiful and was immediately inspired to paint. You can see that I stayed true to form, but perked the colors up a little.

  2. Thanks Curious Cat! I leave the white gaps by hand. I use very thin brushes and love to get really detailed.
