A day in Winter Park, Florida

Food and Urban Sketching

Winter Park, Florida is an idyllic place for sketching, shopping, and eating. It’s my favorite place to visit. Yesterday, I braved the chilly (for Floridians) temperature and took some photos, ate lunch, and visited a cafe to do some urban sketching.

I also love trains, and there is always one rolling through…

Wekiva Springs State Park in Florida

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.

leaves behind its golden ray

sweet gems by the lake
