Buried Treasure

On Ampersand Pastelboard. 16x20 inches. With nupastels, gorgeous mount visions (so so underrated I feel. I'm always surprised at the richness and quality of their pigments for the size and price) and terry ludwigs. It looks so much better in real I'm having a hard time photographing it. I think this is one that just doesn't photograph well. All cc welcome.

Re: Buried Treasure

The figure is very well done and the color of her skin is beautiful. Well done.
The hard dark line between the sand and sky/water is a little distracting.

Re: Buried Treasure

Well done, Lakshmi2115. Sometimes pastels are difficult to photograph. Try standing on a stool or step and zooming your camera/phone lens. It doesn't always solve the problem, but may help.

Re: Buried Treasure

Beautiful skin tones! I try, when possible, to photograph my paintings outside in filtered sunlight. But it's sometimes difficult to get the photo to do the painting justice! Love this one!

Re: Buried Treasure

It looks very nice.
There seem to be many broken colors in it.
It is really hard to take good photos from pastels, I struggle myself with that.
Outside, no direct sunlight helps, but I always end with a photo editing program and a calibrated monitor trying to adjust the photo to the original.

Re: Buried Treasure

Nicely composed and painted. The tension in the positioning of her body looks as though she's concentrating hard on digging into the sand; well done!
