Peonies in Pink ~ Photography Question

Peonies in Pink

8″ x  10″ oil on gallery wrapped canvas

This painting is one I did for Pam, trading for a couple of paintings she did for me… 🙂   I’m having trouble with the true color of the painting from my photograph. Maybe someone out there can explain this to me???

 When I put the photo in photo shop to show the true color of the lilacs in the small photo on the left, the tablecloth becomes a dark blue. If the tablecloth is the correct color as in the small photo on the right the lilacs are more purple.

So in actuality the lilacs are more pink and the tablecloth is more aqua.  Does anyone have any photography suggestions?

And Pam, I hope you can tell the actual color from this…what do you think?


What I’ve Been Painting

Here is my favorite portion of a new painting I finished today…well… it’s not finished until I sign it, and I usually walk around for days and look at it to make a little change here or there…

If you would like to see the rest of the painting and some of the behind the scenes pics and an explanation of how I came to paint this wintery scene, or to follow me in my little art corner, go to my blog alittlecorneroftheartistinme.

This blog Simply Painting is where I decided to post my paintings during the 30 Paintings in 30 Days challenge, so I will be posting on my other blog until we have another challenge.
