As week 2 of my Landscape in alcohol inks course progresses I was going thru my pile of pictures. I love taking pictures but I not use them very often in my work. But this is going to change! Even though the picture is not exactly what you are looking for, you can paint whatever you like. As I am showing here below, the reference image is taken by me in Pacific Grove in California last year. The tree is dark and dooming, but I turned it into a lovely Spring tree, making the painting more colorful. You should try it yourself! Get you imagination going and use only the things you like from your pictures.
