This picture began as a vertical image and I started with stripes, working from right to left. It was when I placed the far left stripe that I saw a landscape of sorts.
From there it was a no-brainer. Rotate the picture 90 degrees counter-clockwise so that what was originally the far left stripe now becomes my base.
I like the overall warm colors and how the complementary bluish elements at the bottom are just the opposite -- cool colors.
Gotta say, the process often feels simply magical, how everything goes together.
I also cropped the picture down to a square format, to give my buyers on Fine Art America a choice of sorts.
There's an autumnal feel to it, isn't there? Well, the weather around here feels pretty autumnal right now. Happy fall everybody!
