The Carrier & the tree (the good photos)

One of the most important things that at an artist should not skimp on is to have good photographs/documentation of his or her artwork.  I had photographs of my two most recent large scale drawings taken by a professional art photographer this week (Peter Jacobs Fine Art Imaging...for those in the NJ area, I recommend him highly).  And, the difference in his photos of "The Carrier" (see below) and my photos is night and day.

My duller, grayer image is on the left; the professional photographer's image is on the right

These images truly document what the drawings look like:



Another detail...I do love that black chicken...

The stamping detail



So now, onto the next tree drawing...
