Jane Autry Art Blog
Not sure what to say, but this sounds like fun. I don't know what tags are, or where this Blog will go. I was painting on location at the Great Salt Lake, by Saltaire, and was committed to taking my time to get the drawing absolutely correct. Then, since time ran out I took some digital photos so I could go home and finish the painting in my studio.
I was disappointed with the differences I saw between the digital image and being there. I am more and more convinced as I continue my art career, that eyes are much better than cameras, and I need to recommit myself to working from life.
Finishing this view from a photo was nigh impossible.
Not only was the digital image so different than the real image (especially the colors) but the mood, the ambiance of painting on location was completely gone in my studio.
So, my first blog is a commitment to work from life!
