Today I demonstrated at the Florida Strawberry Festival using a WetCanvas photo reference.  More people who came by were amazed with my use of the laptop to pull up the reference and paint from it.  I know there are many of you who do the same.  It saves my eyes and I can enlarge, reverse image, reduce saturation for value studies....on and on.  This is an 8X10 in oil on masonite panel.  I may do a little more work on the blanket across his shoulder, but my aim was to get the pose and the COLORFUL face and water jar.

Wonderful job Deb. I also use my laptop to put my reference on. I especially like the "posterize" aspect. It helps show your values.
