Good Photography Required
Leaving an art show in La Quinta, CA, we drove by a stadium where polo players were practicing. The background was beautiful and the players were far away. Unfortunately, my distant action shots with a cell phone were not adequate. Despite that, my enthusiasm for the subject convinced me to blow them up and paint them like they were moving. Hah!
Success can be bashed when you have limited information to make your simplifications from. You really don’t know where the edges are and that lack of confidence can be translated within the painting. A 35 millimeter camera with a telescopic lens is the way to go with an action shot. All is not lost. I will experiment with this piece and go back with my camera.
