I am not one to copy a reference photo exactly. If I wanted an exact copy of photo then I would print one out. I want to know that an artist’s hand was involved.
Not to say there aren’t many beautifully rendered paintings that are so photo realistic that it is mind boggling, but that is not how I paint.
That is also why I seldom provide a reference photo when I share my work. People tend to get so involved in finding what you didn’t replicate exactly that they lose the overall spirit of the art itself.
