One of the many reasons I take pictures is to paint them. I started seriously taking pictures about 3 years ago, but before my first DSLR, I had a Samsung point and shoot. I began taking pictures of flowers and natures in macro mode on it and quickly realized I needed more...but I started capturing those types of photographs because I loved to paint them. I am an extremely novice painter, therefore, I needed help-or in other words-something to look at! The pictures I am posting are the real photograph, and then my painted version. I wish I could find my older ones to show a comparison over time...They could have actually been painted by my daughter, who is 5! I really think that photography and studying various forms of art has really improved my ability to understand form and style, whether it be with photography or painting! Happy looking.
