FACE OF A SAINT XXIII / Daily Painting #1435

Face of a Saint XXIII / Ink and Watercolor / 7 x 10 Inches / Daily Painting #1435

Well, maybe not the face of a saint. But inspired by one. You see, this painting, like the one a couple of days ago, and the oil, Daily Painting #1358, are all three based on the same photograph. Painting from photographs, in other words, doesn't mean copying, necessarily. In this case, the photo served simply as a starting point for having some fun with watercolor.

Ideally, the photograph is merely a point of departure.

Have you ever noticed how often someone will look at a painting and say, admiringly, Wow, that looks just like a photograph? Or, when looking at a photograph, My, that looks just like a painting? Just something to think about.

Meanwhile, the battle with old digital storage issues continues…
