What is in the image: the image is a guide to painting studies with tips on adapting references to suit your vision. it highlights the importance of transforming a reference photo to match the desired atmosphere and aesthetic, rather than simply replicating it. the guide emphasizes the significance of understanding lighting and color logic for efficient and consistent results. it provides three examples with accompanying images to illustrate: 1. simplifying value structure and color logic: grouping elements based on their value and reducing the overall color palette to create a more harmonious and visually appealing composition. 2. creating depth through value grouping and contrast reduction: utilizing value grouping and contrast reduction to enhance depth perception, specifically by reducing contrast in the background to emphasize the foreground subject. 3. exaggeration and alteration of color relationships: amplifying and adjusting color relationships for artistic effect, demonstrated by exaggerating the light in the background and intensifying the contrast in the foreground to create a strong visual impact and highlight the subject's presence.the guide encourages artists to interpret and analyze reference photos, making deliberate choices to achieve their desired artistic vision.
