COLUMBIA UPSIDE DOWN

1992 nondream digital picture, by Chris Wayan.

"Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain" has an exercise I highly recommend: paint from a photo that's upside down to force yourself to see it naively, not paint trees green and sky blue. I tried it with a photo of a favorite spot of mine, on the Columbia River Gorge...

When I flipped this rightside up at the end I found that, given only 16 colors (all I had--remember this was the early 1990s and computer graphics were crude) it was more realistic than most of my work.

Of course my other work was from dreams. Hard to paint dreams realistically. Those ref photos never come out.
