Make it your Own
As artists we are open to inspiration at every turn. We are very lucky to have so many generous photographers who enjoy sharing their images for artists to use for reference and I am sometimes compelled to use a photo shared by someone else as it has something so special it resonates too strong with me to pass up the chance to create from it. I am though, always mindful that for me it is the spark, the reference but not the painting. I make it my own with my composition, colour choice, texture etc. Thank you to John Frost for his wonderful owl in flight photo.
