A World of Painted Stories
OMG!!! You're right! You CAN'T get the colors right! I know your work well enough to know these colors aren't right. Wow!However, my first reaction is to laugh at the fruit-snobbery!! Bahahaha!! I love your humor!! I'm at Starbucks using my iPad via wifi and trying hard not to lol but my huge grin is making me very conspicuous! Hee!
I think that if you take the purple out of the background altogether, so that the purple stands out in the fruit, like a warm bronzy color or something light, what do you think?
Hi Joelene!I wasn't clear, because I was posting in a hurry, but the color in the actual painting, I think looks great. It's the color balance in the photo that I couldn't get right, and it shifted darker and toward a much cooler blue-violet than it is in reality. The actual thing is more subtle, warmer in the areas that look blue-y here, and with some cooler tones in the areas here that look overly yellow. Photographing paintings is an exercise in endless frustration.
