You really should look at these
It’s always lovely to see daffodils after a long winter:)
I took these photographs, using my digital camera last year. They show the movement of light on a windowsill in my flat.
I didn’t start using a camera until eight years ago, and although I prefer to paint from life, I have found the digital camera to be a superb tool.
It allows me to capture the movement of light and shadow, however it is not a replacement for a sketchbook……it’s an added tool.
photographs, especially your own, are excellent to use as jumping off points for paintings.
Have a lovely day, and remember to look at the http://www.artinthealgarve.com website. There are still places available for the April watercolour workshop, suitable for all levels including total beginners.
