This is very close to the original painting, I think I got the colors and values represented accurately. Taking photos of my work is always a science experiment, I keep on trying until I get it right. Thank goodness for digital photography, it makes things so much easier.
I ended up with almost a square format here, and I quite like it. I've always been partial to either square formats or landscape formats for portraits. I know, it's not what most people expect, and I think that is what I like about it, the fact that it's unexpected.
