Artist Comments:

Up the Steps is a painting I composed from a reference photograph. This painting conveys a sense of movement as if you could walk right up those steps. And it was this aspect of the photograph that attracted me the most. I did, however, make changes to the composition to improve it.

I’m part of a social media group of artists and photographers who like to share photos of places, objects, animals, and people they’ve photographed. They allow their fellow members to paint from their reference photos. Read more about reference photos here: Reference Photos for Artists

For more information on the subject of movement and how it is used in art, see the art lesson: Principles of Good Design: Movement.
