takin' a stab at watercolour


This is the same painting


taken first with a camera (right) and second with a scanner (below).


I think the actual painting falls somewhere between the two.

But here you have it, my first full watercolour painting!

(I usually hate flower paintings, and would never have tried this, but it was actually harder than I thought.)

Well done Jamie!

I can never get scans of my paintings to look right either, I wonder how professionals do it...Maybe one day we'll crack the secret.
