I always paint from photos I’ve taken on my journeys (whether a journey to another state, or just a journey to the park). I’m glad there is a group for this, due to the fact that I’ve always felt like “less of an artist” because I paint from photos. 🙂
Tanabelle I started this group first on FB after going through a botched surgery and being on my back (argh) for many months… I painted from images 99% of the time. I was a leper in most groups, which annoyed the hell out of me. I understand why so many emphasize painting from reality, but geesh! I like painting at times when it is not a good idea to walk the streets, I like painting from imagination, and so I will always paint from images a good % of the time. I, like Charlie, feel creativity should be encouraged, never discouraged!
