  2. Hello Elisabeth.
    Thank you so much for sharing with us your fantastic photos; they will inspire me greatly. I will confess I have not been painting much lately, although I do enjoy reading all of your emails.

    My very best regards.

    1. Hi Mike, I am very glad that you are enjoying these reference photos! There are seasons when painting happens less- sometimes it can be helpful to step away for a bit. Happy to hear that you are enjoying reading the e-mails.

  3. Thanks so much! I’m very new to watercolor and at 73, with compromised health, it’s wonderful to have such a great variety of pictures to study!

    Love this idea! Photo #39 might be my next muse 🙂 Your images have inspired my to look back on the photos I took during my first photography class last year with different eyes. 🤔

    Thank you for all the inspiration you gift the world. 🖼️ 🎨

  5. Thank you for sharing….I save so many inspiring pictures too, and find I use
    them often…sometime just a little portion of one and a bit of another…they
    come in handy for inspiration.
