Acrylic Painting / Pintura em Acrílico

Composition, Acrylic on Canvas, 140 cm x 140 cm / Composição, Acrílico sobre tela, 140 cm x 140 cm

This painting was done last year for the exhibition "Imagined Dream" that took place in Lisbon and Oporto. I forgot to share it with you because it is bigger than the other ones I'm used to share so I don't have a place with good light where I work to be able to take a good picture of it. How do you take pictures of your artwork? Do you have any suggestion?

Esta pintura foi feita no ano passado para a exposição "Sonho Imaginado", que teve lugar em Lisboa e no Porto. Esqueci-me de a partilhar convosco porque é maior que as outras e tive dificuldade em tirar uma boa fotografia da mesma devido a não ter boa luz no sítio onde trabalho. Como tiram fotografias do vosso trabalho? Têm sugestões para tirar a trabalhos de maior dimensão?

Congratulations on the sale. This is a wonderful piece. So full of movement and expression.
I think you can google "photographing your art" to get some tips.
Stay inspired!

Great painting. Love the composition.

I'm also trying to find ways of taking good pics with of my paintings. For me, now, it's two lights at 45 degrees on either side and my camera on a tri-pod in the middle. not always easy. I'm a painter, not a photographer. ;-)
