I posted a painting on my other blog today and when I went to my Google photo album later on I found that it was offering this “enhancement”. I have no idea how it decided that the snow was appropriate but I rather like it.
I am trying again with Ebay and listing a few small paintings. Just in time for Valentines Day, why not give something a little more permanent this year?these small paintings (5″x7″) are all signed but unframed, oil on board. Fresh flowers wilt, chocolates are soon consumed but these will last a lifetime (or more)
I have been having constant problems with this website.
As well as some native posts, I was cross-posting all my splynch.blogspot.com posts here. This seems to have been a mistake, resulting in constant out-of memory errors, problems with my back-ups and finally total breakdown of the site.
I have rebuilt the site from the ground up and have decided not to continue to cross-post. However, there were a few native posts on my old site that proved quite popular, so I have imported those onto this new platform. In doing so I had to relink all my images, so I hope that everything is working properly.
I knew this one would be tricky.
For the finished painting see
This one is going to be a challenge.
This might be finished but I will leave it on the easel over night, I will probably fiddle with it in the morning.
I took this image with my ipod, using a neat little app called “DocScan HD”. It is designed for scanning documents and has a built in perspective adjustment. This allows me to square up the picture and is much easier than downloading onto my computerÂ and opening Photoshop etc. However, the quality leaves a bit to be desired and makes my oils look a bit like watercolours. This actually has quite a lot of texture and more saturated colours than I am able to get here. I will use my Canon when I photograph the finished work.
I sometimes wish I had the courage to leave things half done. I have a feeling that I won’t like this as much when it is finished.
All right, here is another. It is 16″X20″ oil on canvas.
