African Queen is off the Easel

Hi everyone, I finished my violet painting today. I had so many troubles to get a good picture of the painting. The best way to photograph your artwork is outside in the day and that works great for me all the time. Well, this time, I noticed that in every picture the flowers were showing up with a blueish tint and the flowers are actually violet - much more of purple hue. I wonder what's up with that???

Here is the the painting pic I took inside on the floor with a big light overhead and it is purple - much more like the real painting.

So here you can see painting pic with the blueish tone? Too crazy! If anyone knows what's up with this, I would appreicate hearing your comments.

good work Lisa
interesting developments

as for the blues.... it is the most difficult color to translate digitally, so that happens a lot , just keep on shooting those oic or just do some digital altering with yr photoshop programme
