    Het schilderij is op zichzelf wel mooi, maar valt donkerder uit dan in de advertentie. Dat is wel jammer.

    Jammer dat u ietwat teleurgesteld bent.
    Alle foto's worden genomen zonder flitslicht en zonder lampen. Wel maken we optimaal gebruik van zonlicht door in de woonkamer te fotograferen vlakbij het buitenraam.
    Natuurlijk kan er verschil zijn tussen de "werkelijkheid" en de foto.
