As an artist, we have the wonderful opportunity to take one of our reference photos from one season and paint it as a different season.
This is a photo I took back in the summer of 2007.
Because I was in the mood to paint a winter scene, I decided to change it. I added snow, changed up the trees in the background and took the liberty of adding a cute little chick-a-dee to the fence post.
Don’t be limited by your reference photos. Feel free to change the seasons, move elements around, delete unwanted elements, and add others.
Have fun re-imagining a scene!
