My wish was to photograph a magnolia flower in the same way as my painting looks. Have I managed it? No, not quite as I wanted to. Because of it, I had to paint my magnolia. Here you see the result, a magnificent flower.
Why did I have a wish to photograph magnolia? Because the flowers of magnolia tree are probably the most beautiful and finest blossoms on the planet. I'm falling in love with every magnolia my eyes can catch! However, I'm not loyal to magnolia because I also love the plumeria - flower of Hawaii, and probably millions of other flowers like peony, lily, and, and ... - but this is another story... - and another project.
As I was painting the flower, I was using as a finisher the iridescent paint: interference red (fine). It allows the flower to practically jump out of the painting; however, you can barely recognise it on the photos of the painting. Why it is so? Because it is very difficult to photograph some of my paintings. I'm using four different cameras, some of them are SLR, each camera shows often different results. However, these results are seldom exactly as the original looks. Anyway, I think that originals always look better than any photographs of them.
The painting comes with my certificate of authenticity.
