Small Progress on my John Deere Painting Project

Fresh snow.
Sun and beautiful azure shadows.

These three factors were the perfect combination for me to harvest more reference photos for my back-burner John Deere painting project. A couple of weeks ago, I found some more old John Deere tractors, exactly the kind I have had in mind to feature in a future painting. I've been waiting since then for the right conditions to photograph them, and I was a little worried that the day I had the weather on my side, the owner wouldn't be home to give his permission. It's a lot more exciting to plan a painting when you know you have what you need to get started - namely, good reference photos. And if I need a little extra detail information, my inspiration is just a 5 minute drive away.
