100% from my mind. No projectors, photos, computers, or anything like that used on this one. Well there is something to be said about that you know. Everybody basis how real a painting looks on how close to a photo it is. But what about how you really see it or remember it. Who is to say that when I am riding my bike and the wind is blowing in my eyes this is not realalistick.
Any way there is something to be said about creating an image from nothing. Before it was painted it did not exist in any way shape or form. Now it is here it is a painted thought that has become something. I want to refine this ability. It feels good to paint this way. I think also painting night from imagenatioon allows me to get away with more because you can get away with more.
