Beautiful job, Ray!  I can't believe how fast you got your painting up - last month's took me weeks to do. 

You might think about better lighting for your painting - the sun works the best.  You can re-post it without being disqualified if it's just a different photo of the same piece.  It looks very dark and I can tell that the colors are more vibrant than in the photo.

Does anyone know if Dennis & Nolan have a video class on photographing your paintings?

Hi Alice the sun in England is hard to find this time of the year but I know what you mean daylight hours are best for photos I had to use a flash to take the picture   I am not sure if I can take another picture in daylight if the sun should pop out and put it back in place of the other one?  Can anyone help on this?   Ray
Kindest regards

Yes you can Ray. As long as the artwork has not been altered, you can submit a better photo.  O0
