No. 522 Last of the Dahlias #2

Last of the Dahlias #2
Oil on Linen Panel
7" x 5"
These days I'm finding the back of a flower as interesting as the front.
On a separate note, I'm having photography issues. My favorite time to photograph paintings is outside on an overcast day. Finding such a day in the Northwest is not usually a problem, especially this time of year. Recently though we have had a long string of cold, clear days. Photos of paintings on those days tend to come out with some strange colors and too much contrast. For instance, in this painting the red scarf looks pretty good, the rest of the background is more raw sienna than burnt sienna. Cloudy days where are you?
