I need to be a photographer using a camera
my eye and mind.
When I get home from the photo shoot I must then bring things closer and into focus
IF ( and that is a big if)
I want to paint the photo as a realistic painting.
I did stand and make other bikers on the trail
wait until I had him just
where the background would be right.
In this case
the photo and the painting match.
24x36 OIL on Canvas
I use the timeline of the painting to teach a class
The total class is on posts from www.artbyraeblog.com
