Since long before “Google” became an accepted dictionary verb it has been a fantastic source of both information and inspiration.
When embarking on a new project/painting/idea it’s always helpful to research what has gone before. If not to gain ideas then to ensure your offering is sufficiently unique in the marketplace. When planning a painting I like to utilise Google Images as a source reference for ideas and to maintain accuracy for the elements in my composition.
Google helps to supply a one-stop showcase of artworks, techniques, tutorials, advice, images and history. These days search engine sophistication is almost at the level where if you think it, you can find it on the web…and Google (or another search engine) helps to introduce you to the right websites – for free. Phew! How did we ever cope the “old way”?
