How do you get such great photos of your artwork?

I have a flatbed scanner that I use at home for pieces sized 9x12 and smaller. I then do a bit of retouching in Photoshop to minimise shadows from paper texture and normalise colours and contrast. 

My larger pieces I have scanned super hi-res locally at Bellevue Fine Art Reproduction (bellevuefineart.com). They have a fantastic digital scanning process, they do all of the colour-correcting for me, and they can re-print my images on essentially anyhing I like. :)

Not normally the kind of thing I like - but this is very good! Nice to see some other watercolor work on DA!

I love it! I think that's really the way to use watercolours- so simply and loosely. Great job and I love the colours!

Beautiful, simply stunning hummingbird portrait. It's like the entire bird and flower were nothing but colour blotted onto paper that have combined into a moving, living creature - this looks to me like mid-transformation...
I hope that made sense :XD:

Wonderful work none the less!

Stunning work. Bursts of color from a fascinating, exotic palette in combination with unconstrained, beautiful brush strokes makes for a glorious composition. :heart:

Lol. Thanks. :) I like the ambiguous quality of watercolour... it leaves so much up for interpretation...*
