On drawing from Photographs

Danny Gregory's article and the comments that follow makes for an interesting read. I found the article raised points that I had not looked at. It is quite absorbing and so is the write-up on it on the Digital Photography site.


But I must admit that I do not agree with him. Drawing from Photographs and from Life are two different methods and each has its own advantages and disadvantages. I do both and would not like to stop either or run down either method. Having said that, the article is definitely worth a read.

Found the link to Danny Gregory's article on the Digital Photography site.


Update: May 26 - The other side of the coin :D on Art News Blog

And I've joined the EDM, Danny Gregory's group recently and find the members very friendly and supportive.

Webmaster El Dorado - Free high quality photos.

UPDATE : The site seems to have been pulled off the web :(

Nice source of photographs which are for free, said to be collected from USENET News. There are over 19,000 images available. A bit outdated as the gallery was last updated in Oct 2000

When one door closes.... Check out YotoPhoto, a search engine for free to use stock photos and images.

Plus some others in previous posts
