I went on a spring photo shoot yesterday at Point Defiance Park, Tacoma, WA. Lots of fresh yellow greens, end-of-winter hazy lavenders and lush green-gold moss! Above is one of the horizontal frame reference photos. I want to paint this scene in a square format so I distorted, then cropped, the photo in my computer to make it square. Next, I changed the mode to gray scale to better see the values for my foundation painting. Yeah spring!
