This painting is also a tip of the hat to Harry Potter. It took me about 10 tries before I got the “eye” how I wanted it. It is amazing to me how the name of an image can change the whole way I look at it.

Answering some comments from previous posts … Sue O’Kieffe, to answer your question, I am looking at the blog (and particularly the paintings) on my CRT monitor, and I see a bit of a color difference, but not much at all. With all my files they are a little different on the large monitor upstairs versus my laptop. Mac vs PC can come into it too.
I am ready to print “In the Cathedral” but waiting for Susan to come home to put her image into the file too to save paper … but it looks good on the screen and usually it prints pretty closely … except the purples are usually too reddish when printed from Photoshop files … so I may need to work on that … We shall see!
Sue, it is neat the way we work so similarly!! I enjoy working and painting when I feel that I am at least as much as vehicle as a creator. For me it is so much more fun!

Update – the purple printed redder than I see on the screen.Â I think I should have chosen all the purple and shifted that color somehow to a more bluer purple.Â But this is the consistent off-printing that happens.Â It is pretty close but not exact.Â And I tried to adjust the saturation on certain colors, but I couldn’t get it how I wanted … so I printed to see what happened – but it looks great!
Another Mad-Eye! Harry will be proud. There are a lot fewer elements this time, a departure of sorts for you. Those colours, I love the colours you choose, love’em
The reference to HP doesn’t really speak to me cuz Im not a fan, but I like this image..kinda tribally or even archaic markings from another galaxy. (i have this thing about old runic language). i suspect the difference between laptop i was using and my own crt is in the graphics card.
Rima, the basis for this image just sort of grabbed me and said it wanted an “eye” – and it said it was happy there … so … good! I am delighted you love the colors!
Sue, perhaps you are right about the graphics card … I don’t really know much about the differences that they create. I am so glad it seems tribal or archaic to you!!
