"Butterfly Bush"
4" x 5.5" Original Watercolor
2011© Gretchen Bjornson

Every so often I get lucky and finish a painting in time to take it outside in natural light to photograph it.  Today, I had no such luck.  As you can see, my image looks "dirty".  I photographed it under the light in my dining room without a flash.  Hopefully tomorrow I can rephotograph the painting and post a better image.

I would love to set up a mini photo studio just for photographing my artwork.  It would be of tremendous help during the winter months when it's difficult to get outside.  It's much easier during the spring and summer to take my work outside and capture a good digital image under natural light.


  1. Poetic painting!
    Congrats Gretchen!


  2. Lovely work, Gretchen!
    Photographing is a pain - I am so lucky to have a conservatory to take pics in. Then the photo edit enhances it back to a natural daylight. We sure have to jump through hoops, don't we?

  3. It is just beautiful, Gretchen, in any light. :)

  4. Gorgeous. Love the butterfly. :-)
