One of the things I like to do is take a scene and 'make it my own' - by simplifying the detail, playing with with warm and cool colors, simplifying values, even abstracting it a bit. It's a fun exercise which I will be giving in my upcoming workshop - not that I am expecting the scenes to need any help! Below is the actual reference.

Pablo Picasso Painting was a Spanish painter and one of the co-founders of Cubism, a style of painting in which an object is deconstructed, broken and rearranged, as if the artist is analysing it from many viewpoints. He was also a poet, playwright and stage designer and is one of the pioneers of modern art.
