I just love to paint but taking the pictures of the painting is another story altogether!
It seems hard to capture the subtlety of some of the color applications. Oh well I probably need a special lens and right now I have to make do with the camera I have.
Still I think most of the colors do stand out a bit but I wish you could see it in person!
I do the background in acrylic but ended up covering the canvas with oil paints. The silver edge and dark green edging are acrylic though. I added micaceous iron oxide paint to the green as it adds a bit of texture and a very subtle glow.
I have some ideas for a series of pastel paintings of roses that I hope turn out the way I am envisioning them.
But first I have the Art Swap challenge I need to pull together, being sponsored by Jillayne at A Fine Seam @ http://quiltingfabrications.blogspot.com/2010/08/swap-update.html
I am sure it is going to be the most fun ever!
