Tutorial: Copyright Free Images on Wikimedia Commons

January 24, 2017
Another favorite site of mine for finding copyright free imagery to use in my artwork is
It is a vast repository of imagery available for download under creative commons licenses. You can find very old illustrations, vintage photography, and contemporary photography. 
You can search through the site for all sorts of subjects.

    perfect timing! thank you for sharing this info – I had been looking for an image of a lamb or calf to use when I take a class with david taylor in june and had been having no luck. I thought I was going to have to knock on a farmers door and ask to take pictures of his flock – but I found just the right photo on this wikemedia site – LOVE IT!
