Again, the quality of the photo really doesn’t do justice to the original at all. There’s glare on it that I couldn’t get rid of in photoshop, and the background is lacking the richness in color that’s really there. You’ll just have to take my word for it! I can’t wait to get my frames for these. I found a great company in Kelowna that makes beautiful plein air frames that will fit these perfect. www.classicgalleryframing.com. Their prices are reasonable, and they ship to my teeny tiny nowhere town.
I have to try to get a better photo of this one, without the blur and the glare, but nonetheless, it’s still one of my favorite paintings to date. I’m getting better with the loose brushstrokes, and this one literally flew off of the brush. It was really inspiring to achieve exactly what I was going for in this painting. It doesn’t happen for me that often. The looseness worked, the colors worked…and thanks very much for the great contributors at WetCanvas for the great reference photo.
