6 x 8 oil on panel
40.00 + 6.00 s +hI was sort of surprised when I really studied the color of these nectarines. I always had in my mind that they were almost the same as a peach. They are much more intense, and the colors are also alot darker. Most of the effectiveness or success of a painting, I think, comes from the artist's Eye, rather than from their Hand.
I haven't gotten the knack of taking really good photos of my paintings. I've taken them outside, flat on the ground, inside with flash, scanned on my scanner, too. Then I have to change the pixels to no bigger than 600 pixels in any direction for the Fresh Paint site. I've got so many versions on Picasa out there, I can't remember what's what.... Can anyone give me any "pointers" in doing the best photographs???
