    Beautiful work! I like your use of shadows and the bold colors.

  • Thank you Eryn, I have to learn how to take the photos now, there’s too much reflection off the canvas. I’ll keep trying and hopefully replace this image with a better one.
    Thank you for the encouragement.

    Wow! You really know how to paint flowers.
    I have the same problem taking photos of my oil paintings…the shine. That’s why I havent posted complete images of them. I just scanned portions. If you figure out how to take a photo without the shine let me know.
    Meanwhile what you have posted is wonderful! I’m glad you found me so that I could find you. I love your paintings!

    A lovely red rose! Maybe you could try placing the canvas in good natural light (not in sunlight), placing your camera on a tripod and photographing it without the flash. That could reduce the reflection off the canvas.

    Thanks Rosanne and for that suggestion. I think it has to do with the mediums I use in my painting too. When I can borrow a camera, I’ve got a stack of shots to take and re – take. :)

    Beautiful work.. stunning red rose. I agree with what redrosedigital said re- mounting your work on a tripod and not using flash.


  • Thanks Di.
    I dream of getting my own camera and learning some techniques. (I’ve got to find a job first:( ) Next time I can borrow a camera I’ll retake a few and find some natural light. Thanks
