I'd almost forgotten I'd written an article for the Paint My Photo website's quarterly news letter quite some time ago. It's just been published and I'm on pages 35 - 42 http://issuu.com/paintmyphoto/docs/newsletter_spring_2013 There are some other interesting articles too, take a look.
Paint My Photo has been such a fantastic resource for me over the past few years. For people such as myself who lack the photographic skills, equipment and opportunities to get very much of our own reference material there is a wealth of fantastic photographs to use without any fears about copyright issues. There is also a thriving community to tap into whether it be for advice, critique or just for friendship.
