Maine Shore (Watercolor)


I'm about halfway done. Maybe less. But I hate my scanner. It darkens part of the picture.

I am happy to see you back at it!

When at the Art Institute in Chicago I was reminded how only the originals have the right colors. I'm sure your original is beautiful (although I think the digital version looks great so far!)

Do you have some editing software that can tweak the colors for you? I use GIMP to get it to be closer to the original.

Nice work, BTW. Glad to see you at it again. : )

Thanks everyone :)

I've been shopping more expensive scanners and I'm thinking that I'll get a better one in September. It's just too much for my HP scanner.

Kris, I'll check out GIMP... thanks!
