Artists are always looking at other imagery to find inspiration. In fact, a few of my art teachers steered me towards other artists work – from photographs to drawings and paintings, to learn to draw what I saw. The internet is a wonderful source for inspiration since I can find multiple images of whatever strikes my fancy in order to draw creatures, scenes, people… I love to look through ancient illustrations and modern photographs for my ideas. One of my sources is now The National Gallery of Art since they have made more than 35,000 images available as high quality downloadable images. After all, they belong to us!
Right now I am perusing images to that remind me spring is coming… the winter is wearing on me!
