Still life this time to get away from the seascapes for a while.

Hi Paul,

Very nice!  When you do a still life do you actually set it up and light it?  I tend to do things from my imagination and I struggle with keeping the lighting coming from the same direction.

Hi Autumn,

I have tried and tried to set my own up and photograph them without success, this one was from a reference library at Wet Canvas.

Most of my works I create by merging parts from different photos to create the scene I want and then use that print as my reference.

I don't paint from imagination so as to get everything as it should be, ( I hope ), or as best as I can.
