Stonington Overlook Watercolor 9X12

This is a watercolor of Barbara's house in Stonington, Maine. It's done on Fredrix watercolor canvas which I'm not sure I like for watercolor, but may work better with opaque watermedia, like acrylic or gouache. After many attempts to photograph this painting, the results are washed out. Disappointing, but I suppose I should read the camera book?

Read the book?... never.

instructions are for very extreme confusion---or for wusses. Just get creative with it.

Thanks all for the 'skip the book' vote :D
I actually have had to go to the book and carry it with me ;)
