Photography Day for New Paintings

So I’m really excited to do a series of new paintings based on local landmarks and places. Of course the landmarks will have my own spin on them, using mixed media methods, but that’s what will be so fun about the challenge. I want the make them recognizable, but with a fresh interpretation.

The weather was absolutely perfect for taking photos yesterday. There was a little bit of cloud cover, which made for beautiful lighting and shadows. The temperature was also really nice, so it was a great day to get out of the house and breath in some fresh air.

So here are just a few photos from my day out:
