Forest River

Voy Kay 10 Feb 2020

Second uploading of the same painting I did last week yet this time, I managed to camouflage an unintentional squared disturbance in the background near the light by adding an extra tree on the left. The tree is a little more bright then the other yet it's closer to the light as well. Also the colouring is much more profound by letting the paint dry for several days now. Me and my family 200% agree that the painting is much better now with this upgrade. Hope you will agree too?

I think this looks better too. That tree adds to the depth of the painting and hides that rough edge. I also noticed that you changed the lighting when you took a picture and this one is more bluish. By the way I found that my phone has advanced photo settings that allows me to compensate from my studio light at 4100K. This seem to be very interesting topic on how to photograph your painting for sale or posting on the web.

Dear Sunnylady, you are really reading my thoughts. I was already preparing an article on how to prepare, set and upload pictures. I noticed that when I wait at least one day to photograph any, colours become more intense and the resolution gets better. That ios why this second painting, taken on the exact same location and equal light diffusion, makes such better impression and colouring. I intend to wait with taking and uploading pictures for at least 24 hours from now on. Till later!

Great background trees voy, the trees on the foreground are awaysome good job!

Thank you Patoex, this one really became a gem after it dried for several days.
