Oswego Creekbank


I`m enjoying working on flat unstretched canvas but photographing it is another story. The weave is too apparent and when I shoot the picture, I`ll see transparent diagonal lines across the image. ?? Sometimes these will also show up in a thumbnail but not the enlarged photo. I may finally have to read the manual.

Love your paintings! Great color, composition, balance of abstract forms and nature.

If you are using photoshop with your images,you might want to go to Filter, Sharpen, Unsharp Mask, and set the top slider (%)to a lower number to soften the canvas texture.

Ah, to be sitting beside that creek instead of here in this 19F cold and snow!!! Ah, yes, when in doubt, read the manual (I think that's my husband's mantra, too!).

I don't see diagonal lines, but I do see an obvious face in profile. In fact, I can't not see it. Is it just me?

Manual Shmanual...you'll figure it out. I do love your paintings. Your use of color and your forms are inspiring.

Ah, when all else fails, read the directions. That's Lyn's M O. I like the nubbly texture.
