These are some small size landscapes I did recently just to stay in shape. All took not more than 1.5 hours. My goal was also to stay as loose as possible which is usually my problem :)
These are approximately 4X6





I need to play with my camera a bot more as well, these seem to come out at least 1 or 2 values lower than they actually are. Any tips?

Very nice. I really like the sky in the first one. The colors in all of them are beautiful. Pam

the first and last pics have a sense of mood with the scene . nice . :)

cameras - phone , tablet , SLR digital ?
> control of the lighting , and knowing your computer/software/screen is important ;

take some photos of your painting in direct sunlight on a day with mostly clear sky .

take some photos in shade .

take some photos in shade with a white panel/surface reflecting sunlight onto the painting .

load to your computer/software , and compare the painting to your screen ;
you may see something close .

if you know software manipulation , this may save you some time as well ...

Thanks Ed.
I have 2 cameras, 1 is cannon DSLR and a 13mp phone camera. I used both. The phone take a decent picture but knocks down the values and doesn't always choose the right white balance. The cannon seems to dull out bright yellows. I will definitely try what you suggested and report back :)
