A Different Perspective!

Cades Cove Church

A different perspective can make a good painting a great one.!

One of the most difficult parts of a painting can be the composition.  This is especially true when painting on location or setting up a still life.  My watercolor painting above titled  Cades Cove Church, was painted from a photograph I took when visiting Cades Cove in the Great Smoky Mountains.  I took several photos of the church from different perspectives to find the one that added the most interest.   See the examples below:

Same church....different perspective
As you can see from the photos above, a different perspective can  make a more interesting painting.

Happy Painting!
