This is a painting which I did yesterday from a photograph in a magazine. In the past I have felt badly about doing that and justified to myself that it was "only for practice." I have since discovered other well known painters who also use photos or images from various media which they some times refer to as "found images" so I do not feel as if I am cheating. Others may of course disagree.
This is a 1/2 sheet; 15 x 22 inches and I have decided to call it "The Sphinx."

I am a painter in both watercolour and oils who also works in the film and television industry as an Art Director/Production Designer. I enjoy doing small plein aire paintings in oils and larger watercolours in the studio.
