Arch Cape Oregon

10 x 10 oil on wood panel - SOLD
I've been working on this painting (second go round for this scene) for a ridiculous amount of time, mostly due to other obligations.  There's things I'd like to change but it ain't gonna happen.  I want to paint an animal!

White Balance settings on your camera

These photos illustrate how much difference the correct white balance can make.  Both these photos were taken at the same time....but I had the white balance wrong on the top photo.  It's important outside too because your camera will zero in on the lightest spot then try to capture all the detail around it.

This lower photo looks much closer to the painting but it's not quite as vibrant.   There's sooooo much stuff you have to pay attention to!
