A Week of Drawing Sunflowers

ahh the color is still grey – just think of these in the sunshine

supposed to be white paper not grey

I’ll just keep bumping up the brightness. I think now I have the camera on automatic in direct outside sunlight.

Ok this one I tried with a black background

This one I bumped up saturation, brightness, clarity  just about everything – still isn’t right

Bumped up the exposure in Lightroom 3 too much. Gotta go back to painting. It’s hard to try to be a photographer, someone who draws, a drawer?  and a technical wizard on the computer! Click on the image to see it larger. Who knows the color may be better 🙂 I’ve been thinking about Joan Mitchell and Vincent Van Gogh. I see how they were caught up with sunflowers, especially when the morning sun first lands on the yellow petals.
