This has been sitting on my desk for a week. I watched a Youtube demo, and that artist covered her tile with one solid color, and then painted flowers over that. I had that in my head when I started this, but clearly I was not thinking. I covered the paper in the sky blue. We all know what you get when you mix blue and yellow.
Started 4 x 4 inches. But the head was flat on one side, and the petals sort of flopped on that side as well. Digital crop to the rescue. Funny it took me that long for it to dawn on me to crop. But it did. Took a while for this to grow on me.
Site was down for three hours today. The internet to the server was out. The internet was out to all of Miles City (MT. Where the server is). Here’s hoping it stays up now.
Is it really the end of week one? So soon! Yup, it is.
I named this Light and Shadow because I goofed. The highlight on the vase and the shadow are on the same side. No, you’re right. There is a good explanation. There is a lamp on the left of the vase, and the bright light is reflecting off a mirror on the right. Makes perfect sense to me.
Had a busy day, so I kept it simple and quick. I took a chance on trying the mineral paper again. And I have to say it is growing on me. I still like Yupo better. (Have some on order.)
On Yupo, the dark spots on the foreground would have spread more. The rust color was very wet at the time. Also, the background is actually two different shades. A pink, and a flesh tone. There should be pockets of each, but they mingled into one. No worries. This one was fun.
