How about diffusing the outline of the woman a bit more so that her body's edge blends more into the abstraction of the rest of the painting.

you want a close picture of this and not a huge black border as it is i can see cropping issues on the corner. you need keywords and a description. don't assume we know what this is.

Art Prints
your loupe is off, but i can see its too small and too soft to print. again no keywords and description. these are important.

you only have 12 works and they are a bit random in choice.

if you add no keywords - no one will ever find you.

Photography Prints
this looks digitally enlarged. while its clear, its also very pixelated. never enlarge things. they may not print it.

you should arrange everything into collections, like the day of the dead stuff should be in one spot.

Art Prints
seems all of them have a pixellated look to it up close. you'll want to scan these in large, whatever camera your using or software, stop using it. something like this wouldn't pass in printing because everything is stair stepped.

the bio should never say self taught. especially don't say you have some high school art experience. its like saying - hi i'm your chef this evening, i am self taught and i took home-ec in school, i also used an easy bake oven when i was a child. if you've been doing this for 20 years, you would have more than a dozen pieces. concentrate on telling people about the work itself, what you like to make, what makes you special.

Hard to tell based on an online image, especially since I only have my phone with me today. Looks like you are working fairly expressionistically building up colored layers as you go. Also looks like you are somewhere between figurative and abstract work. Overall I think the work is interesting and I would be intrigued to see what’s next. Though you did not ask it might be worth your time to study the work of Chaim Soutine. In any case keep at it!

Does anyone know how to upload an image to size without enlarging it?

you have to shoot it larger or scan it in larger. that's the only way.


so like set up your scanner to 600, 1200, 2400 dpi and crop, clean and upload a jpg of that. but save the original as a 16bit for archival use later on.

What kind of scanner?

a photo scanner is best. i use an epson perfection v600. not sure if they still make it though. but it had the best dept of field. you may need to scan it in sections and stitch it with software.

either that or upgrade your camera. or maybe its just the camera settings. many keep it on small settings. when it should be on the largest settings.

Thank you Mike. I appreciate your help. Very appreciated. As far as the image of what my painting is... what do you think?

i can't make comments on the paintings themselves, i don't paint, so i stick with technicals unless they align with things i make.
