Last from a photo? maybe

From a photo I took in Hyeres, France.. I have been drawing lots from my photos because I love the subject matter and it is cold outside here in winter, however, I agree that it is the translating from 3D to 2D that puts the artist into the artwork. Also I greatly admire Urban Sketchers whose drawings are from life. So no more from photos. At least I am going to give it a whirl. Why is the phrase "like anyone cares" running through my head. Don't answer. I care.

A bench in Port Moody, drew this from the car.

From my photo. The Lygon Arms in Broadway, a town in the Cotswolds. There is a much grander part of the hotel next door to this building. Took the photo on 2009.

Coffee shop

At least it's not from a photo. In a coffee shop at Austin Station, Coquitlam BC. A really animated conversation about husbands. Of course I did not eavesdrop, oh no! They were looking right at me and didn't know or care that I was drawing. Good weather coming so outdoor drawing ahead, can't wait.
