Perseverance is more prevailing than violence; and many things which cannot be overcome when they are together yield themselves up when taken little by little.

Almost - Iris


Working on the last flower - the big one in front.

We've roughed it in. Small brushwork next... then detail and finesse on the grass and we're done.

This work is too big for the scanner. I had to scan it in pieces and then line it up. How will I take a picture of the 24" x 48" painting that's up after this one?

For the large painting take it outside on an overcast day or set it in the shade on a sunny day. Make sure the plane of the front lens element is parallel to the picture surface and take your shot. Fill the frame to avoid as much cropping as possible. You might need to set white balance accordingly (ie: shade or cloudy depending on conditions) if possible. Although most cameras now days do a respectable job with auto white balance in most natural lighting conditions.

Thanks, Kelly, for the tip. I'll have to give that a shot!
