The reference was from a photo I took at the same place that had the stump house/shed at a campground/park/museum a little east of Bellingham.

I had a terrible time trying to get the digital to show the right color. I should have taken the photo outside. The background is greenish blue and yellow. Also I used salt which did not work out right either. I'm showing the cropped version.

The whole thing is 9 x 6 with a one inch border. Has anyone else had a hard time with sea salt? Maybe I used too much?

Sylvielu, this is nice--I think an even closer crop would make it more dramatic!

Thanks for looking Lyn. I was thinking the same. I may crop it and send it to my mom.

Sylvielu, this is gorgeous! I love the pallette you chose... I have had no luck with any kind of salt... It's one of those things you have to practice to get it right... and I don't have that down pat yet... It doesn't matter, because your background looks great and your Mom will love it!

Thanks Jan and Char. I did the flower in aureolin and vermillion. I have never used vermillion before. All colors used were W & N.

Hi

This is good..the background looks like copper with verdigris and the flower like Rubys set in Gold..excellent...a gem indeed!

Also has a Tiffany feel to it
