"Far End of Fisheye Lake"
I am experimenting with painting the mist on the water. I like the effect. I was reading a painter's newsletter that I subscribe to the Painters Keys by Robert Genn. It talked about how artists that use a lot of photo reference end up with paintings that look stiff and like a photograpsh. I have been using a lot of photo reference due to the fact that it is, on average, -20 Celsius and time constraints. I love using a good photo as a reference. I take a lot of them myself and get permission to use others. I think it is a good tool as long as the painter does not get too caught up in copying exactly.
