Many artists spend almost equal time photographing to find the perfect references or capture light, action or life just moving too fast to commit to canvas or paper. With the growth of digital cameras, it becomes easier and easier to shoot hundreds of images in search of the perfect one.
I am no different and usually have a camera close by either inside or outdoors - just in case. Some of the images I'm quite pleased with and I've been collecting a select few to offer for sale. These are on my website and are both colour and monochrome - the version that I seem to favour for the mood and atmosphere they create, especially for damp seascapes and landscapes or mysterious images in the barn.
This is one of the newest pieces that you can see on my site www.jeanettejobson.com. I have also included the colour version here as well. Which is your preference? Each seems to have such a different feel to it.
