I am still trying to figure out the best way to photograph my paintings.. this one has a bit of glare on the top right corner.  It's a delicate balance to capture the nuances of brushstrokes without getting glare.  Also the color can read differently in different lighting conditions.. indoor with artificial light vs. outdoor with natural light.   So I went for the best representation of color and got a bit of glare.. I'll keep working on that.  I enjoyed the challenge of mixing my greens to go from light to shadow.  I did finally reach into my paintbox and grab Varsari Chromium Oxide.  It's a very neutral green, not too warm, not too cool.

Susie...A photography class for artist might help.
