I do not want to paint sunflowers that look like circles with daisy petals. Many times it is harder to paint in an impressionistic manner than to paint an exact replica, for me anyway. To copy a picture is similar to coloring in a coloring book for me and I find my paintings do not have interest or individuality. Some people call that being "tight" in their painting style. I fought that urge to paint the sunflower exactly like the photo reference I was using but I told my brush to be free and I think the sunflower was redeemed.
