Choosing a picture to draw

Assuming that your drawings are based on photo reference, as are many of mine, finding a good photo to work from is the biggest obstacle to getting a drawing started.


I love photos with lots of contrast, detail and of course the subject has to appeal to me.

Yesterday, I started a drawing of 2 of my grandsons sitting on the steps by the beach. This photo appealed to me, of course because they are my grandsons and also because of the wood grain on the steps, the reflection in the sunglasses and of course those cute faces!


Tell me how you decide what your next drawing is going to be.
