Intermezzo Poppy Solo is a new study in the studio today. I wanted to see if I could produce the variation in color using just a few pigments and one large brush - especially because red can be so darn hard to photograph. Usually when I finish a painting, I take a photo of it and look at it on the viewfinder. Then I put the camera away, and correct all the little things I thought needed adjusting in the viewfinder. Looking at the painting through the camera lens, and then the image the camera produces on the small screen, always helps me see things I've missed, or areas that could do with some boosting or brighter color. Time to wash up the brushes now and put the pugs to bed. Have a great evening, and a really exceptional weekend - tomorrow is Pugapalooza for DFW Pug Rescue, so we have a big day ahead. Annie's got a bonnet contest to enter...

Effectivement photographier les rouges est très compliqué... En ce qui me concerne, je sais par avance, lorsque je peins un drapé rouge, que la reproduction sera inférieure à la peinture. Je suis effectivement toujours déçue.
Votre coquelicot est magnifique, je ne sais pas si vous êtes satisfaite réellement avec la reproduction. Si celui-ci est moins bien que la peinture, j'aimerais bien voir la peinture... ce serait un véritable bonheur.
gros bisous à vous

Love the bridge between music and poppy, Nancy. I hope you have a fabulous Pugapalooza and I do hope Hannah, Howie, and ... (I cannot believe I forgot your last boy's name...I think I haven't had my coffee yet today...) all get to go with you and Anniebelly!
