Yes, it is! But I thought I'd give it a try anyway.
I think it's one where a great source photo has transferred into a good but "interesting" painting, but not really in the way I'd expected it too.
I get criticism about breaking the "rules" of still life painting quite a lot. But I'm fine with breaking the rules and with the criticism. I like to try things.
And I'm looking forward to the epitaph:
"Here lies Grant. He occasionally played fast and loose with the conventions of still life painting."
And people will look down at my grave and gasp: "Wow, what a guy."
. . . . it's early.
I always work from photos. I can't draw from life at all.Curious ... you sometimes (?) paint from photos? Do you change things? For example, if you wanted to omit the drawer in the still life, could you do that, or is it "it's in the photo, so it's in the painting"?
Really not criticising, just wondering about the process.
