Really Big Onion
I decided to try a really pale palette for a change. I also spent a couple hours this morning playing with my camera and editing options to try to get a better picture. I found if I took it off automatic and used the cloud setting I avoid the excess blue tones that usually mess with my color. I re-posted a couple of my recent paintings below with a better image. I still had a heck of a time with the Key Limes and Purple Cup. as the background is a lemony yellow-green and the key limes are oranger yellows, but I can't get the differences to show up (it's still not right). In general, I'm having trouble with color accuracy, but this particular painting has been a nightmare.If anybody has any suggestions for me, I'll try them!
I have been invited to join Daily Painter Originals, which I'm thrilled about. Thanks to all of you who wrote to welcome me. I plan to officially join and start posting on Dec 1, as my schedule and my situation here in Arizona are less than ideal for doing a good job, and although I will be here until late December, I can handle a month of Arizona postings before returning to my Seattle studio.
