Glare in the Dark Spots

Today's painting was created qute a while ago, but I was so challenged with photographing it that the posting is quite late. The first time it was photographed, the paint was still wet. The dark areas on the lower left glistened with reflection and produced a photo that was so unlike the original paintng that I couldn't bear to share it. After the paint dried, I tried again. Still there was some reflection and the color wasn't true. So, this is my third attempt. The glare and reflections are still present, but reduced considerably and much more like the original than any of my previous attempts. It has joined some of my other small landscape paintings at Small Impressions Gallery at Etsy. This little painting is 5x7 inches and will sell for $50.00 plus $6.50 for shipping to US addresses and can be purchased with a click right here.
