The Occasional ATC #ATC # #Watercolor #Zentangle

For a couple of years, I was heavy into ATC trading, and did hundreds of them (I never do things in half measures, lol).

Eventually, I got tired of the small format, keeping track of trades, and paying postage so, as most  do, I moved on–to Zentangle.  Occasionally, though I find an unused ATC card, and decided to use it.

This makes me think of a temple or adobe-type dwelliings.  Maybe the building in the background is where the temple staff live.

The MorgueFile-Free reference photo gallery #MorgueFile #ReferencePhoto #photographs

Have I ever brought the Morguefile to your attention?  It’s a site where people can upload photographs for artists to use as a reference without expecting credit or payment.

It’s a easy to use site, tons of photos of purt near everything, and it’s free!  You’ll see a row of buttons near the top.  Make sure Morguefile is selected, because the site is linked to other sites where you can buy photos for use.  WARNING: This site is addictive.  Did I mention the tons of photos? I could get lost for hours, and am tempted to download everything!

I found the reference photo for this fella, who has I painted in watercolor on Kilimanjaro Natural, Cold Press.
