In this Podcast, Stefan Baumann talks with his students about painting from your Imagination verses painting from a photograph. When painting from a photograph the artist is limmited by what is on it rarley adding anything to it that would depict the human emagination. We as humans love a story to bring us out of our every day life. Like children the more we put into it, or what I like to call it "PMI" the more we love the story. Painting from your Imagination brings the viewer to a different level of seeing, one that is from the heart and not from the eye.
Stefan Baumann Artist of The Grand View PBS Television series discusses the importance of sharing your work with the public. The best way to do that is to be part of an art show, but maybe my work is not good enough! This short talk is to motivate you to just go out and do it!
