The Government Wharf - finishing off

The Government Wharf
24" x 24"  oil on wood panel

I've concentrated on putting in the final details for this piece and its sitting in the corner of my studio waiting for any tweaks and drying.  When I sign off on it, it goes to the other studio for its "glamour" shot.  There its set straight on an easel and lit well or, if the day fits, put in good daylight for photographing.


I shoot final images in RAW to ensure I capture as much detail and colour as possible.  The result are high resolution files of about 10 or 12 mp.  If I want to reproduce any of the images, the highest quality is required to be able to reproduce in larger sizes.
“The lessons you are meant to learn are in your work. To see them, you need only look at the work clearly — without judgment, without need or fear, without wishes or hopes. Without emotional expectations. Ask your work what it needs, not what you need. Then set aside your fears and listen, the way a good parent listens to a child” ~David Bayles

captured the green algae/moss colour very well :)

I use to shoot in RAW, but now most of the stuff I do fits the scanner

Thanks Jen. Algae is so very a vivid green. I could become obsessed with it. :)

Scanners work beautifully and give nice bright images but only my sketches will fit on my scanner bed now. I only use RAW for the final shots of a painting, as the files are so large.

yeah anything bigger than A3 I have to take a photo of, but don't tend to work bigger than that even with etchings because I m a slow artist lol
