I have been wanting to get a scanner for a long time but I could not find one that I could realistically afford. I have been doing research on and off for the last few months. I ended up finding a deal on Ebay through Epson on the scanner I liked for only $59.00 and that included shipping!
I thought I would do my first scan tonight on a painting that I did earlier in the week. Below I wanted to show you the difference between taking a photo with my point and shoot camera and scanning it with my new scanner.
I am really pleased with how the scan turned out because it is more accurate than the original photograph of I took. The painting is much softer than the first photo and you can see this in the scan.
I don't have any paintings to add to my 30 day painting challenge. That is the bad news but the good news is that I have the whole weekend to spend in my studio to create some new work.
Thanks for looking!
