Every painting style has it's unique challenges. For representational paintings, the challenges are:
- to paint the subject accurately
- compose the scene in an asthetically pleasing way
- choose colors that will appeal to the viewer
After all, my paintings must do more than what a simple photograph can accomplish. So, I allow each painting to start with reality, and make the leap into the imaginary.
I would love to hear your comments.
