Illustration of a point

Here lies a cautionary tale related to the painting mentioned in my previous post. After spoiling the original through over working, I tried to rescue something of worth from the painting. While I’m reasonably happy with what I now have, that contentment quickly evapourates when I see photos of different versions side by side. My only consolation is that the newer version looks better “in the flesh” than it does in the photo.

I suppose I can therefore try to convince myself that the earlier version really looks far better in the photo than it ever did on the canvas.

  1. I realise that different lighting (I used natural light at different times of day) makes a big difference in the appearance of these photos. That can be seen on the left of the painting where no significant changes were made, and yet they LOOK so different.
