I've been discussing how to 'look' at a potential subject for a painting recently - and in that connection how to crop a subject. All conventional stuff . But how often do we remember to try and get a different perspective on something we're used to looking at? Such as looking "up at it" rather than "at it"?
Here's a couple of photos from my visit to Tatton Park last Saturday of possible subjects for future artwork - magnolia blosson and a very old oak tree - taken while the camera was looking up (actually I got rather a damp knee when photographing the tree trunk as I knelt on the ground! ;) )
