Schmid/Swatland Study


This photo was taken under a fluorescent light and is still wet in places. With incandescent it would appear a warmer green and a bit redder. Also, the top right (viewer's right) is showing lighter because of the light hanging above. I'm laughing because of all the disclaimers. In real life, it has much more sparkle. Anyway, I'm calling this done even though it isn't even close to Mr. Schmid's painting or Katie Swatland's study.

I like the rustic ambience and the texture you created through your strokes. Lighting has always been a problem with watercolor and acrylic paintings/illustrations. I tried taking a picture of it in natural light, but it still failed to capture the original intensity and appeal of the colors.
