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.

    What a find – thank you – just the joy of looking at lovely photos – waiting for a rainy day when I am not zentangling or learning more about my latest passions – simple book binding (does Coptic count as simple?) and baby-step art journalling projects!

    Thanks, as always your generosity and contributions to our learning is greatly appreciated. A note to Jakki – some folks would think coptic not easy. Jump over to FB Milliande Bookmaking Group and play along with us to make books…new prompt coming up soon.

    THANK YOU SOOO MUCH for the morguefile reference! Also, thank you for all your work in researching and sending us these neat things. What would we do without you?
