Re: Getting back to photo art
Welcome back, Barbara.
The results of your hard work paid off resulting in an exquisite painting. I think this one would look awesome printed on canvas, adding to all the nice textures in the image and hanging on a wall. Your technique (thanks for sharing) which demonstrates intentional omissions and inclusions adds so much calmness and mood. Hopefully you shall share additional creations in this Forum.
