 :2funny: Cute, Batman!  ...love your sense of humour!  You're just as confusing as copyright issues!   :confused:
The very safest way to produce our art is always to take our very own photos, just like you do, Batman.   So generous of you to share them here.
My camera has been busy taking photos of our magnolia in the back yard.  I'll share some and anyone is free to use them with no complicated strings attached.
No time to  :painting:  these days, too busy enjoying the beautiful spring weather among other things.  I love to see what everyone is doing and of course, I have to visit the forum to relieve my withdrawal symptoms.   :)

I heard someone say once that its best to paint/draw from your own photos because when you were there taking a that photo you got the sense of the temperature, wind, exact lighting and stuff like that that you wouldnt get from another persons picture; it makes sense.

I think you have a point there Zac.
For example, it feels a bit odd for me, to paint mountains and trees I've never seen or will see, because they don't exist, anywhere I go.

I know how my own surrounding feels, I know how life is, in my imaginations, and I think, maybe, in the future, it's easier to give that feeling to a painting, when you have experienced it yourself.

Don't forget to take notes and quick sketches.  I've read one person's got a neat little tip which has saved many paintings.  Its easy to forget what the sun position is.  He places a dot at the canvas edge/side to mark where the sun position is.
The time it (a work) takes is the time it takes.

your own photos are always the best, but it isn't always possible, so it is good to know how to use other peoples photos without running into copyright issues. Luckily we show how to do this often in our classes O0

Yeah, there aren't too many Grand Canyons, Big Ben's, Taj Mahal's wild lions etc Kiwi birds etc in Australia. And vice versa for our animals and landmarks.

Unless you are counting on it for a living, I wish people could be a little more, share and share alike.

It is a good class Nolan!  It's still great to use photos from all resources as reference.   

I'm glad you brought this question up Batman-it helps steer me to actually designing my own compositions.   ;)
