Bowl with Bittersweet 8 x 16 on Panel

I decided this time to try another panel with the scale of 8 x 16. I wanted the painting to be longer and not as high. Since I love painting bittersweet I painted one with a brass bowl and a vase. This painting was painted in May and it has taken me this long to get a decent picture. I have taken pictures for weeks with this painting in 100 degree bright sunlight, sunset light and everything in between. I wasn't happy with anything so this morning I once again tried the early light of day and I think I finally have a picture that looks good. The picture was turning out redder then it actually was in the painting. I think this one shows it as less red, but maybe a touch more then it actually is in the painting.
