The Lady of the Blue Camellias by Achen089 The Lady of the Blue Camellias by Achen089
EDIT : Better scan? :)

A watercolour painting i did yesterday.I'll try and get a good scan of it,the photo doesn't look anywhere near the original.. :(

Any advice/hints for taking nice photos of paintings too big to fit into the scanner..?

Um, well the photos I sometimes took for my art were blurry and the colors were a little off depending on the lighting...so make sure you have a steady hand and bright lighting.

I just want to say how much I love this painting!!! It's beyond beautiful! Where did you learn to draw/paint like this? I'm trying to better my skills. Well, trying to get some skills. lol. I just wanted to know if you took a class, or it's natural. :)

Hey,thank you very much for your comment,it's lovely to know you liked this painting. :)
I didn't have any classes,i believe i came to this point with constant practice,a little bit of experiment and by observing (other artists' work,the things around me etc).

Apparently there is a fix in PS for photographed images that have the inevitable 'fisheye' effect(when the bottom or top of the image is slightly bigger or smaller than the other end - I can't hold still or photograph anything perfectly straight on and have tried for ages, so the image is always slightly skewed) Do you have photoshop? If so I could check what that is with my PS savvy friend. It doesn't alter the traditional pic, just corrects the skew :)

I had to fav this. That dark lip line brought it all together and those eyes. I feel I know her. A beautiful painting any way you look at it.
