This has been one of the most difficult paintings to photograph that I think I have ever had! I suppose it is the amount of black, but either it comes up much lighter than it actually is or else flattens out all the detail. Well I think I finally now have it quite accurate and of course when people are looking at a painting with a view to purchasing it, it is up to the artist to make sure it is a good representation of the original. It must be terrible for someone to buy a painting they fall in love with only to find on receipt, it didn't look like the painting they saw online. I haven't had this happen and hope I never will - hence my reason for taking so long to get good photos of my paintings.
This painting is straight off the easel and will need to dry for several days before it can be shipped.
