Inspired this evening!

Originally uploaded by sbergeron00

I was inspired by a photo in a Home improvment summer magazine. The Gazebo and lots of flowers, perspective and greens made it challenging and very rewarding when I finished it. My husband even said it looked really good. That's high praise, usually things look nice or pretty good. so...

Any comments or suggestions on what to do next time greatly appreciated!

Have a great evening(or morning depending on were you are in the world!) cheers, SB

What a delightful picture! It's full of life and joy. If I had any comment at all it would very simply to say provide a touch more variation in the tone of the greens. I just love the feel of it though.

My hubby uses the "nice" word a lot, too.

In real life the there are more variations in the greens.

The scanner's bright light washed out the whole image and playing with the levels got some but not all of them back. I can see what you are saying here.

Thanks so much for the comments!

Bright and colorful. My favorite kind of place. It's freely drawn rather than looking like you checked everything out with a ruler so it looks like a relaxing place to be. Love it!
