Different Strokes from Different Folks

This is a fantastic idea...
Different Strokes from Different Folks

A photo is posted every two weeks and then any number of artists create a work based on that photo... there's nothing sepectacular about creating a painting from someone else's photo, it's actually unacceptable, but there is some magic here - the number of variations are incredible style, skill, interpretation, composition... there are so many variables that it blows my mind to even try contemplate the number of possible interpretations!

San Francisco Victorian
other artists

I'm treating these exercises as practice sessions - my aim for this one was to paint loosely and within an hour. I did not achieve the overall effect that I wanted, but it's not terrible either.

Of course this painting is for sale, but not yet... it's still wet!

Welcome to DSFDF. I like your method and approach to the SF Victorian. I also like your Alla Prima painting, very nice.
