Old Playthings!

"Blocks and Marble", 6"x8", Oil on Linen
I finished this piece yesterday but I've been having a difficult time getting a good shot of the painting to post. I often wonder if other artists struggle as much as I do photographing art work. At any rate, I'm not happy with this piece but thought I would post it just the same. I've also been busy working on some pastels lately which I'm not sure if I'll post on here or not. I guess it will depend on how they come out.

Yes taking pictures of your work is one of the most challenging things that I face. Scanning makes it easier on the smaller pieces.

Hi Erika,
Thanks for taking the time to respond. Maybe I'll try scanning!

You are right ,taking good pictures of paintings is a science.

Hi, I have trouble photographing paintings too but I have the best luck without flash, using a tri-pod, outside on a gray day and with a white piece of paper behond the work. Does that help at all? You've probably tried all these techniques too!

Some of my art photos are not the best but I keep trying! Good luck!

Thank you for the bloger that I do learn something from it. Wedding day is readlly a very important day in our life, so we should charish it and wear the most exclusive bridal jewelry set, having beautiful jewelry accessories to decorate the hair, also wearing nice pearl drop earrings and pearl bracelet.
