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.

just before the sun

leaves behind its golden ray

sweet gems by the lake
