"Crescent Moon", 22" x 30" watercolor
I am still wandering around in a very dense forest (in my mind) and feel the need to continue painting treescapes. Hopefully I will get this out of my system soon but for now I am just gonna go with the flow, layering color with exaggerated linear elements. I start teaching March 17 (the last class I taught ended right before Thanksgiving) and the new treescapes have been a much needed reconnection with watercolor.
Photographing unframed watercolor paintings has never been a problem for me but I have recently noticed a huge difference when the photo is taken in bright sunlight outdoors compared to indirect light. I am not sure which is best to use but indirect light is probably closest to what the painting would look like hanging on a wall under glass. I wonder what other artists do about photographing their works?
