    Default Translation into Spanish, could anyone help?

    ¡Buenos días!
    Could anyone please help me translate this into Spanish? (If possible European, but not necessary.) I would be very grateful!
    I'm not very familiar with the person in question, but I don't want to sound too formal. I have written once before.

    Thank you in advance!

    (Oh, and I am a woman, writing to a man. It might be good to know.)

    Here is the finished watercolour (painting) as promised. It was complicated but fun to make (do/ paint).

    All of your photos are like paintings themselves, so beautiful and very inspiring.
    Have you published any books with your work?

    If you permit, I would love to make another painting from one of your photos some day.

    Kind regards

    This way I think it souns polite.

    Aquí tiene la pintura, como quedamos. No ha sido fácil pero me ha gustado hacerla. Todas sus fotos son pinturas, bonitas y además inspiran.

    ¿Ha publicado algún libro con sus fotos?

    Si no tiene inconveniente, me gustaría realizar otra pintura de alguna otra fotografía de las suyas.

    Un cordial saludo,

    Thank you both for your translations, it is very helpful!

    I don't know much Spanish, but I am just wondering... if I write to a man, should I not say something like suyo/suyos, instead of suya/suyas?
    Or does the inflectional ending follow the feminine word "fotografía" or some other rule?
    It doesn't matter for the message, I'm just curious for my own part. I'm trying to learn a bit..

    right, micu: it's a Spanish rule, where the feminine noun "fotografía" takes a feminine possessive adjective (or any adjective, e.g., "hermosa", etc.)... regardless of the photographer's gender! haha.
