I have a folder on my computer called “To paint”, which contains all the photos I’ve taken that I might someday like to use as reference for a painting.
Maybe you have a similar system?
If you’re anything like me, there will be a handful of photos in that folder, which you’re saving, because you don’t feel like you’re ready to paint that particular subject just yet.
It’s such a great subject that when you paint it, you want it to be the best it can possibly be, so you think you’ll just wait a bit longer, until you have more experience and you are more likely to do it justice. When you feel ready, you’ll paint that masterpiece.
Well I have news for you…
