Sometimes taking a photograph of a painting can be a challenge. The paint could be glossy and reflect too much even if a flash isn't used. And sometimes the art just absorbs all the light and doesn't show well. The painting I'm showing here is of the former. It is a very dark painting, needs a lot of natural light to properly see all it has to offer. In the photo it actually shows up brighter than the actual painting. No matter what conditions I try to photograph it in it is never 100% accurate.
