The Laurentians

A study of a view across a field to the Laurentian Mountains in the background. This was painted a few miles from our house looking north. The photograph of the painting shows the sky darker than the sky in the painting. I'm still working with my polarizing lens and trying to replicate the colour and values on the monitor to match the paintings. Jeff Mahorney has some fascinating links from his blog to sites that explain colour management and the problems that arise when trying to duplicate colour when moving from paint, to camera, to monitor. I'm looking forward to reading what he has to offer in terms of practical advice for art bloggers.
