Yeah.....I have noticed the same thing, at times. Some of the most popular paintings in art competition shows that I enter are of lines with wash hanging on them.

Hmmmm....I think I should paint one, also.

I'm also impressed with Jon Redmonds work. In fact I am currently painting a still life of silverware as I was so impressed with his version. I am drawing it first though, and I am using lines, which is exactly what he says not to do. I will try to focus on shapes and mass and not line.

I remember those, Allison! I especially love the last one with the backlighting. I also know what you mean about wanting to draw first, although I'm trying more and more not to. Looking forward to seeing the silverware piece when it's done.

Re: Painting from progressively less blurry image ?

Resurrecting a little bit old thread, but I wanted to add another "tool" to this:

Posterize. If you struggle with recognizing value changes (especially across organic objects), Posterize separates the smooth value gradients across a face for example, into bands of value. Useful for me for the early stages of laying down value. Only to use as a starting point though, because if you stick to firmly to the placement of the values, it will make the lighting unnatural.

Re: Painting from progressively less blurry image ?

Derek thanks for the introduction to Jon Redmond, I really like his style. I often switch between direct painting and finding edges later through value shifts or line drawing as needed. It is rare that I use too detailed a line drawing though, as I often end up covering it and have to find the line again anyhow. A line drawing is very helpful for iteration work though, when I may need to scan and print off a copy and just do some changes for someone (doesn't come up too often right now luckily, iteration is very time consuming).

Delo: doing Redmond's method without line takes some guts, but I'd like to give it a go.
I imagine watercolor would be a good place to start.
