I was thinking that I could post some more studies here. :)
This is from a time where I was obsessed with snails and loved to paint them to study light.
The original photograph that I studied this from was shot by Vyacheslav Mishchenko

If you want to see more recent studies you can go here: www.facebook.com/pages/Anne-Po…

The next one also comes with a video: fav.me/d7ykvio

Would you have any suggestions as how to find such beautiful reference photos? After watching your other snail study on Youtube, I was inspired to go try a colour study myself but couldn't find any nice photography that I liked.

Really beautiful though <3

That's a good question. I think I found it on pinterest when I was looking for pictures of wildlife etc.
Pinterest is a good source. I then used Google reverse image search to find out the name of the photographer so I could give him proper credit. :)

You did a wonderful job getting the lighting different from the reflection, and the suttle bluring in the reflection really makes the top part pop! Great work
