Yellow! It just had to be yellow, didn't it?
I had a red series going, and should have done two more red canvases.
Nooooo. I began painting with yellow.
And now, the camera won't pick up the warm "golden" yellow for a photo; it shows it as a bright lemon yellow. Yes, I'm painting in layers and glazes and mixing it all up. It's what I do.
Please tell me how to fix this. I know you know. You're smart, experienced, and you photograph your paintings all the time; I know because I drool over your paintings constantly when I visit your blog. And none of them look like the neon yellow in my golden yellow paintings. Lighting? Camera? Settings?
Go ahead; dish! Spill it. Whisper it in my ear...

How's your studio time going? Tell me about it. I wanna hear. Really. Please.
