Incidentally this last entry resisted all my efforts to photograph it. Until now I have used my high end compact camera to photograph my entries but I just couldn't focus close enough to get a good shot for this model. So next I retrieved my trusty DSLR with an assortment of different lenses. I tried a macro lens but couldn't get the colour balance right, then I tried a telephoto from a distance. All the pictures were rubbish so in the end, in desperation, I whipped out my phone and took some pictures on that...and they were the best of the lot and are the ones I have used! Seriously, thousands of pounds of camera equipment and I end up taking pictures on an £80 camera phone!!
I have to admit to being a bit worn out after the frenetic activity of the lest three months, and it will be good to take a break. The treble 0's will be packed away and Ill be moving on to 4" brushes because I have promised to do some home decorating! Now all that is left for me to do is take some Body of Work photo's to post early next week. This years Painting Challenge has been excellent and I'm constantly in awe of the quality and quantity of the entries. When I describe the Challenge to outsiders I never refer to it as a mere competition. Instead I always call it a Festival of Painting and this years event has once again raised the bar in terms of quality and variety. A huge thank you needs to go out to Curt (and the minions of course) for running such an excellent event and I for one am already looking forward to the next AHPC in just 9 months time!
