I've been on such a landscape kick lately, working from favorite photos. And in fact I had a favorite photo all picked out for tonight's art class as well. I had printed it out and was ready to go. Except that I forgot the photo and left it at home. I got to class tonight and was sorting through the photos I had with me, but none of them grabbed me.
And then it struck me that it's been such a long time since I actually painted something from life. It's been all photos lately. So I decided that "from life" would be good practice, and I painted this one from a small still life that Chris had set up in one corner of her studio. It's my usual new fave, 9x12 Art Spectrum Colourfix.
