Riverwalk's Cafe Ole in San Antonio Ok, I may have to stick to portraits. I did enjoy the Cafe Ole part, but the water ate my lunch. And the trees. What should I have done? Can this be fixed? It seems to be jumbled and a mish mosh of colors, which is what the reference photo is, of course. Simplify? I would someday like to feel as though any subject matter is possible for me to paint. Feeling shut out of landscapes by my as-yet-inadequate methods is frustrating. I wondered whether to post this, but truth is truth and maybe someone has advice for me that will penetrate the fog around my head on this subject.
