Photography of artwork : an imperfect tool.
Same old problem with photographing art work, that the shadows are always crushed up into black. Especially with the delicate fine tones of watercolour. In this artwork itself, I took great care not to let the dark tones go to black, but rather held them around ultramarine blue, a few notches up from black. Currently, have the feeling that ‘black holes’ do not accord with the misty mellow overcast light of autumn, here in the Dordogne, not far from the Atlantic ocean.
