Yesterday, I painted a view from my back yard. I painted rather thickly. I never had the problem photographing a piece like a did with this one.
I was dealing with a lot of glare. Because the sun had set when I finished it, I had to use light in my home, rather than diffused natural light from the outside. So today, I tried rephotographing it without success. Then I started painting from my imagination.

It was great fun.
Yet I still need to paint Painting 8/40 for today.

If you click on the painting you will see a blowup with all the texture and brush strokes.
