Backgrounds seem to be my nemesis....or something, because, they're almost always the hardest part of every painting for me! Anyway, this background has been numerous shades of green, and then blues and then browns and then finally ending with a mixture of all of the above- the blues and turquoises really don't show up well here- but enough to get an idea. And, I'm mostly happy with this. I like the border, even tho' the final effect wasn't exactly what I had in mind- I did want to play with softer colors and maybe because they're a little different from my usual color palette this seems so different to me? I really don't know- I do know I was happy to finish and am ever so ready to move on to something else!
Be sure to stop by at Paint Party Friday- either to check in your own work or just to check everyone else out- it's always a blast!
Happy Friday (a day early ;))
