Gathering research photos
I like to take the iphone and the Nikon DSLR when I go on walks, especially in a place as lovely as Wekiva Springs State Park. It was a good morning for gathering some landscape inspiration. It is best to paint on location, but if time is limited, I always try to collect photos for my reference file collection–I often use them as ideas for larger paintings.
I don’t use this lens that often, but it was fun playing with the camera settings today. Of course I was melting in this Florida heat, waiting for hummingbirds that did not visit. Maybe next time!
Florida Living… feeling spoiled by the beauty today.
