image on left taken in the studio under white light before background was added and image on the right is in my living room with new background. adding just that line really changes the feel of the “space”. i like the background for the painting below but i’m not sure how i feel about the effect above.
the image above, and this image below are my favorites from my art class on halloween sunday, my first day back to class since may.
it took me awhile to decide where and how to place a background. it was actually due to the suggestion of my teacher and she was totally right. the background anchors the image in place and gives it depth.
sumi-e ink & wash on paper.
