Heh, two of these are paintings I'd drawn originally to go with the paintings I posted LAST year. Mom's insiting I not post them for fear of people stolen. I told the only two that AREN'T more or less copied from online photographs probably aren't well-painted enough to be worth stealing :).
At any rate, the copied photos were a nice painting excercise (as you can tell the serow one was a bit more rushed then the others)
Mom said she wanted a painting of some of the famous structures in SF, and thankfully the most overphotographed things were what she liked the most. The Tanuki (racoon like things) probably turned out the nicest. The foreground monkeys, middle monkeys and the landscape were taken and dropped from different photos, till I got a mix that worked: the monkey in the foreground who's getting groomed, his expression didn't have to be alterred from the photo at ALL
