My plein air art group is not doing much outdoor painting right now. It is pretty cold and wet out there!! We have a project to do our interpretive paintings from photographs. It's part of what goes on "behind the scenes" with us. For January, we could choose one of three and I chose a still life. This is the painting. It is a watercolor and is about 15" by 28"--unframed and unmatted at this point. I much prefer painting from life, but this is a fun excercise and gives us a chance interpret the same subject, and we usually do it in very different ways. The others can be seen at http://www.behindthescenes-ppasp.blogspot.com/, which includes results of some of my artist friends who painted this scene, one of the other two, or a combination. We have new projects for February!
