April 2012 Photos to Paint Challenge

Wowzer! It’s been a while. So sorry for being so late in getting this up this month. Since I am late, feel free to take until the end of the first week of May on this Photos to Paint challenge. Truth is, I have been really busy lately and, well frankly, feeling a little uninspired. Enough of that I say! I am getting really excited for some trips this summer including a visit to Yosemite, New York, Rocky Mountain National Park and Ireland, which will give me a ton of new photos for the challenges.

I have been contemplating putting this photo up for the challenge for a while. This photo was taken in a square in Florence, Italy a couple of years ago. I think it provides an opportunity to test drawing skills and your ability to render a pretty well defined 3D form.

Please use the form below to submit your painting. Your picture should be a high-quality jpg image that is at least 480 pixels along its longest dimension at 72 pixels per inch.

  1. Hi Lee,

    I hope I get this challenge done! I have tried 3 times. It made me realize that I have totally forgotten how to do a portrait! Even though 2 years ago that is all I did while preparing for a Daniel Gerhardtz workshop. So this really is a challenge. I shall work on it this weekend to get it done before the deadline!
