Mostly I get really frustrated with scanning work. You can labour over a piece for ages; choosing the right shades and colours for your subject to find once scanned it has somehow changed.
With this picture, though, I am quite pleased with whatever happened during the whole scanning process. It was painted on a plain white board but hey! A 'happy accident' as dear old Bob Ross would have said.

You're right...this is a happy accident. The color produced by the scan is so warm.
Beautiful! (Isn't Bob Ross the quintessential 'happy accident?')
Fantastic!! Wonderful color and shape.
Nice piece of work!
Beautiful again, Andrea. Your delicate colors seem to be rendered faithfully. Your pencil coloring has inspired me.
Beautiful! Is that some form of garlic?
Renate - this is some sort of garlic but I'm not sure what sort!
I adore Bob Ross and have done since the moment I set eyes on him. Ok, his paintings were not my cup of tea, but I could certainly appreciate his skill. For me though, and this is such a cliche, the world was a better place for having Bob with us. Aw, I miss him so much (I feel a tear welling up!).
Cheers everyone, I'm off to dig out my 'Joy of Painting' videos..
Smooth feeling of quality
I like it.
It's very nicely done
Thanks. This was done in watercolour as for the size..um...about 5-6 inches squared (??!).
