Re: Howard's Rose

Here's an update...signed, but that doesn't mean I won't tweak it more.



This painting is NOT photographing well!

Re: Howard's Rose

I have the worst time photographing reds, pinks and oranges... *hugs*

Beautiful work! I love how you've done the water droplets, too...

Re: Howard's Rose

Thanks y'all!

I did try scanning it...it wasn't any better. The colors came out more true to life, but the canvas texture showed up more...much more.
