Istanbul - Colour corrected

I just had to re-photograph this painting. The colours are very subtle and I had to work on it several times in PS to get it right. This time it looks just right on my screen. The yellow is a bit stronger than it shows in the actual painting, but the rest is just right.

Solitary Lookout

This knife painting was a true pleasure to work on. The colours again are not right in the computer image, but somehow I am having a very hard time translating the subtle colours that I am deliciously making to the bits and bites of the computer digital world. Perhaps I will try to rephotograph this one and the one of Istanbul again this week. I really want you to enjoy the paintings as they really are.

For now, I hope you can appreciate this one as it is until I can fix the colours on the screen.

Istanbul

This one took me about 2 weeks to finish. The photo does not do it justice. The colours are too subtle to capture in a photo, but I tried my best to work in PS to get as close as possible to the real colours.
