Here's a light decorative I had fun with. Not final yet, so let me know if you feel something isn't right.
Also, Photoshoppers, how the heck do I crop an adjustable circle?? I used the circle marquee tool for this image, but it won't let me adjust the size!
Thanks a lot, Erika
Here it is. Better, but now the figures are fading into the background. I think I'll need to paint the background around them. A strong colour that doesn't compete with the figures. I'm leaning towards very dark green, but considering orange and red as well. What do you think?
Thank you so much everyone for your comments. I wasn't entirely happy with the figures not popping out enough so I gave the figures shadows. Thanks E for your input, you were right, the green background didn't work. What do you guys think of the result?
Erika, you are on to something with this look. Anybody
would be proud to have this as a wall piece! It is happy,
unique-looking and Pretty Darn Cool.
Better start thinking about what you'd charge.... E
Thank you all again. It's varnished now and that ought out the figures nicely. Carmelo, you're right, forgot to mention it's a bowl. Hubby says reminds him of ancient Greek vessels. Ha-ha, E, what do you charge for something you worked 3 days on?
