b21 Visualize Your Painting Idea

Visualize your finished painting as you would visualize your dream home. See your painting as large or small, horizontal or vertical, and predominantly light or dark, warm or cool, bright or dull. What mood would you like it to convey? What is it that you want the viewer to remember about your subject? Close your eyes and let your mind wander.

If you are using reference photos for inspiration, do some creative editing in your mind. What would you keep, emphasize or remove for the finished painting?
