christoph: thank you for a tip  ;)  that s correct, i use dark tones and highlights a bit more than before as i was inspired by you  ;D 


michel: thank you so much, this explanation is perfect. i was thinking how it could look with different colour backrounds  :)  ...... i think that the black backround is the best to use or dark blue maybe dark grey.

You are right, Christoph.

Black background brings up the best colours, due to the contrast between no colour and colours.
White background is probably the worst becasue white is tt bright and kills the colours, which become too dark! the white therefore become too shiny to the eyes.

But other backgrounds lighter can be useful if associated as complementar to the dominant colour of the painting. The tone is softer, Grey is neutral, more 'universal', but others would also fit.

Here are some examples or a red painted subject.

Very nice painting. I like that.
As your painting is dark (as my own) I would try to take pictures against a lighter background. Maybe something in the colour of sand, like a parade ground would work to give the figures a greater effect.
