As some of you know, I began oil painting again, after only painting on silk for the last 12 years.
And I fell in love with it all over again! Hello, old friend!!
I took a ton of photographs, trying to get at least a few good ones, for this post.
I do believe this is the one that most resembles the actual painting.
Or maybe it's closer to this one.
I know it's not this one.
But I kinda like it.
I guess the actual colors in my painting are somewhere between all three of these photos.
I have three cameras. All three were used. The painting was photographed outside in the shade, in the sun, laying down, tilted and straight-up.
It was also photographed inside my studio, in the kitchen, under a light-source, with natural light.
None of the photographs are spot-on. Not because I didn't try! I wore myself out, trying!
I can honestly say that the hardest part of my painting experience was not the actual painting-process itself, but trying to take a decent photo of it!! Grrrrrrr!!
There has got to be a trick to this! Besides paying a photographer thirty-five bucks per painting!! (Although, that doesn't sound too bad, right about now!)
Here are my cameras -
This little guy took picture #1.
This one took picture #2.
And this one, my most expensive camera, took the worst picture... picture #3.
I didn't set out to buy all Canon cameras. How'd that happen?!
I've started another painting and I'm having a ball! But, I'm already getting that uneasy feeling about the photography-session that looms ahead. (Heeelp meeee!!)
To my new friends, if you'd like to see this painting in progress, in my studio, please peek here;
By the way... how are you guys liking the new Blogger set-up? Yikes!! Another learning curve!! Just what I needed!
I'm trying to figure it out and it's not too easy, is it? What's that old saying, "Why fix it if it aint' broke?"
I'm almost afraid to push the "Publish" button. :)
There are SO many things to love!
I love "Followers" and comments too!
Signing off for now,
