This is my favourite painting at the moment. I loved the intense white of her dress against the dark background.
But oh my, was it difficult to photograph! The shine on the background was a nightmare and no matter which way I turned it or where I placed it, there was this horrible bluey sheen! We have had cloudy weather here and even in the early morning with this cloud cover, nothing worked.
So it was off to the local art shop for a tin of re-touch varnish and that seemed to do the trick. The shine of the varnish seemed to counteract the shine of the paint, and this is the best result I could get.
