I enjoyed this article on painting from life

I would prefer to paint everything from life but it is often difficult to do that. Too many aspects of a scene or subject that might make a significant contribution to how we paint it, are always lost / unavailable when painting from a reference photo whether we are aware of it or not.

Re: I enjoyed this article on painting from life

Found it interesting as well. Two quotes really hit me.

“I want to experience the lemon I’m painting. I want to touch its surface, smell it, be sitting in the same light that is reflecting off its surface.”

“And making art for me is more about the experience of making it, the involvement in the process, than the end result. I lose interest in my paintings almost as soon as they’re finished.”
