Day 4 Painting from life.
Today I am going to the beach and am going to paint something I see there that inspires me.
You can just walk outside your front door to the garden, or paint your pet or your kids. Even your cup of tea. Just as long as it's a real thing and not a photo. If you take a photo of what you are painting then compare what you see in the view finder and what you looked at while painting you will clearly see how different it is and why I say paint from life. It will make you think more carefully about what you see in a photo and how a photo can't tell the whole story.
So Happy painting everyone, hope you took up this challenge and painted something real today.
