In my little brain, it seems like if I take a picture then the picture should look like the real object. Oh, not so. There are so many factors involved (things like lighting and background and speed and lots of other things that I don't even know about.)
Just the fact of changing the background can really change the look of a color. Take a look at my (newly finished!) mittens photos. Not one looks close to the correct colors. The two on the green binder were taken only at a different angle, and the tan background is actually a chocolate brown bedspread.
The last one was retouched to get the closest I can to the real colors (but it's still not that good.)
Yep, going slightly crazy (but have a new pair of mittens finished.)
The baby blanket (knit like a huge dishcloth) is also done. And shown on my new chocolate bedspread that I actually bought to be a couch slipcover. (It's not wide enough, but that's problem for another day.)
(See my lonely spinning wheel in the corner? It misses me, I think. Maybe I'll spin something soon.)
