40"x 30" oil
So pretty much I paint on Christmas eve. No kids and the family has moved to the other side. These latest pieces were just completed. I did them from my imagination over old work of mine. I had an epiphany tonight that made me think these imagination pieces are more about "self" than any observation work could be. I use to think the only honest work was done from observation but am questioning my own theory. On top of that is picking pieces to paint over. Plein air work is intense and rewarding but is from observation after all. So my question is what do you all feel is most important in your artistic endeavors ? And keep in mind memory painting is still based on observation.
