I like the ideas you have, but do not like this particular photo in black and white. The color versions tell me more about the painter and her? natural subject. We have an event in the area like that where there are quite a few artists out in natural settings painting. Always a great event, and a good place to practice our art form. (Photography )
While the BW produces an old time documentary effect i'am with you on color for this one. Her choice of color for the scene made me very curious about her process.
