Scarlet - Photographing Reds

Scarlet
16X20
Palette Knife/Oil

Scarlet was completed quickly with a palette knife. I try very hard to make sure I get a photo of everything I paint, but reds are very difficult to photograph well. They don't print as well as other colors, so making this painting into a card mailer was an task I spent hours on and eventually had to abandon. If you have tips or suggestions on how to successfully reproduce your reds in photos or prints, I would love to hear about them. This would be a great question for art guru Linda Blondheim...!
