View Full Version : I need suggestions for background

05-20-2015, 08:18 PM
This is my 4 year old granddaughter and her best friend, whom she calls her number 1. They are in the supermarket. I want to paint them but put them in a different scene than the supermarket. It will be a loose painting since there isn't much detail. But I need suggestions for a background.

On a sidewalk beside a lawn...or just on a path in a meadow...

since it's indoor lighting, be sure to not use a brightly lit outdoor scene

I personally would just hint at a background with abstract receding colors ... browns and greys ....or leave it white.

I sure you did the painting already. need to go into photoshop and cut them out and then you can paste them to differ backgrounds. ever them walking among the stars or on Mars lol

I had the same problem on my picture of Zach & Fin! They were walking on a bright, white sidewalk- so I just did a loose background more geared to my daughter's earth color in her home!?!

The walking ile of a normal street, put some trees and grass, and use the same perspective as the supermarket..

Find a background by taking pictures where you live and add the kids to the photo...Maybe ask them which picture would they like ??
