Painting from photographs.
This is a demonstration of a seascape in oils. I have no problem with paintings made from a photograph you have taken yourself. This photo was taken at a beach called "Boulder's"- a lovely beach near Simonstown near Cape Town. Penguins used to wander about freely on the beach, but now they have become big business for the tourists which is a pity - consequently they look a bit depressed (the penguins, not the tourists!) I made a video called "Depressed Penguins" which I shall be uploading shortly - watch this space!
