 :thankyou: Everyone for your wonderful comments. I am blown away as I really went to town on the texture experiment  ;) & not knowing what on earth the outcome would look like,, it's very busy! I loved doing this tactile challenge.
I would love to know how you all manage to keep such a steady hand when you paint? Mine just shook alot.

I love your Dandelion painting MaryLou, It's is so beautiful, whispy very clever. I'm going to try doing some more texture pictures, now that I can see things that I would/n't use again & I'd love one day that I might be able to learn to paint by using softer colours and finer strokes :). You all do such beautiful work

 :urwelcome: , your painting does look awesome!!!.
My hand isn't steady as well, and I also suffer from doublevision, but before I start at my painting, I do a underpainting, or paint a sketch just for getting my hands 'ready' for painting, and ofcourse myself. When doing some 'test'painting I am more relaxed when sarting at the 'real'painting. And when I am done ...there is a lot of tweeking with a smaller brush,  :2funny:

Here is mine under natural light by the window:

I don't seem to learn that it is difficult to take a photo of a painting with a large dark area and a large pale area... I kept doing this and the details get lost in the photo.   The details and colors in the clouds are washed out, and the details of the foreground are gone.  Any tips would be most welcome?

Good one in Natural light Annie. In this case it has worked out right for you with the light from one side casting the shadows.
I never take photo's of pictures with flash nor in the bright sunlight, Always in a bright even light situation.

Love it Annie! Great entry! :clap: :clap:


I like the first one too.I usually keep my painting on the floor and take early morning or late evening..so no harsh light.But never done texture painting ... so not sure if it will catch all the textures well!
Good luck!

Great painting :clap: , and I love  :smitten: the texture Annie!!! Taking good pictures is sometimes a bigger challenge then the challenge on itself. :2funny:

Fabulous texture Annie.  The first one looks terrific as the light has made shadows and really shows up the textures. :yippee:

 I am horrible at taking photos  :crazy2:but I do know that you can not use a flash.  That much I have learned.   :)

Win,
The simulated texture is 'Shading' of the sky from light blue to ultramarine, number 4 in the Texture Tutorial.  I guess the actual textures overshadows the shading  :whistle:

 :thankyou: Bill, Jay, Riya, Mary Lou, for the comments on taking photo.  I will remove the one with the flash.   Also thanks for the words of support.
Cheers, Annie
