GETTING ACQUAINTED WITH YOUR SUBJECT

I'm having fun preparing to do a painting of Barton Creek for a collector. This is one of the paintings I've done to become familiar with the area.  The final painting will be fairly large (28x38).  When possible, I like to do a series of smaller paintings in preparation.  The series may be drawings, sketches, and small paintings.  Besides being a lot of fun, the approach tends to get me interested and opens my eyes to the feel of the place.  Not only that, it helps me build confidence and excitement about the project.
