Sellers Notes & Tips: These are not intended to be 'HD Screen Savers', Photos such as these are a Painting Reference. (Many artists still prefer Polaroid's if you can find the film)
You dont have to sketch and 'paint the photo', you may consider referencing some elements from references photos. Let your imagination run wild.
Try sketching and painting what you 'think' as a result of what you see.
