Finished Painting- Composed From Photos





















The Chapel at San Luis sits atop a hill and is the destination of the path that follows the "Stations of the Cross" that leads up to it. I exaggerated the perspective to heighten the sense of approach and added a tree and the fence; these elements were in the photos. The mountain shape to the right I added purely for the sake of the composition.
"Capella San Luis" is 30'x 36".

Painting from photos can sometimes be taxing because when ya get home and get them up on the computer they have a way of changing. Sometimes I look at them and I wonder what the heck I saw in "that" in the first place. You did an excellent job tho of takeing several photos and coming up with a nice composition and an unusual view. I really like this one.
