I have a confession to make - I rarely paint from life. I mostly paint dogs and even though I generously give cookies to Mully, she refuses to hold a pose. Besides I am not talking to her - she got into the garbage for the first time and made quite a mess. She even looked proud, so we are through until she says she is sorry.
I working my way through Carol Marine's book in my other blog artbythebooks.blogspot.ca and this section is on using a view finder which I did. I like the composition, I love the lemon and the cup at least looks like a cup which is progress for me.
