Last night I held a private paint-and-wine party at a home in Indio. The host had chosen a photo that she took at Cottonwood Creek and the whole group did a great rendition, though we struggled a little with lighting towards the end. [Note to self: take a couple lamps on private parties just in case – not all homes are lit like studios and galleries.]
Here’s the original photo I was working from
Here’s my studio rendition from the photo
Here’s what the girls came up with. The hosts husband vegged out on the sofa on the other side of the room and commented they’d never been so quiet.
