It is said that the best circumstances for photographing you paintings yourself are outdoors, and overcast days. I have always wanted to test this theory since I am chronically dissatisfied with the snaps of my paintings, save a few. Here is a recently completed painting I managed to photograph with all of the elements cooperating, and damn if it isn't the truth! I am super satisfied with the way the digital image compares to the real thing. Try it for yourself.
