From time to time I change some of the photos or move them about. It has become a “short list” for my paintings that I intend to exhibit next March. I’m not going to paint every photo that I display. The board has enabled me to spend time just looking and reflecting on my time at each location that I photographed.
I need to “immerse” myself before I decide on a subject to paint. This board has already been a great help to me.
You will notice that I also have a number of photos on my art table that serve the same purpose as the display board.
Trying to “capture” the highlights of my 12-month holiday is an enormous task and I need time to re-visit my experiences.
My display board is fast becoming an asset, one that I already treasure.
How do you cultivate your inspiration?
