OK, I guess I will try to be brave and show this painting. It was my second oil painting. I had seen a challenge by Gamblin Oil Company to make a painting with nothing more than Black, White and Torrit Grey. This is what I came up with, but have been too chicken to show it to more than two or three people.
12/2/2012 I have finally learned how to go into levels in my Photoshop and make the picture look more like the painting. It is hard to get a good quality photo of an oil painting. With watercolor, if it is small enough, you can just scan it and get a fairly accurate representation. Photos are trickier.
