I went with fellow artist Margaret Coombes for a drive to Norfolk Plains area of northern Tasmania today. We were sourcing images for doing an entry in a forthcoming exhibition of the area. Here are a few photos. Tomorrow I will post a picture of an initial small watercolour from one of the photos. When taking photos to paint from I feel composition is a critical factor although alterations can be made. I do not work in a photo realistic manner.. I like to capture the mood or the salient aspect of the location which encouraged me to take the photo in the first place.
