Wow, isn't this just an amazing background color? Not entirely sure how I wound up at a purple-blue background for a mostly green-gold flower, but I think it works! Now I want to try the same thing larger... but that's the idea with all of the sketches, I know. Like yesterday's apricot, seeing what something would look like set against the super-dark background, all high and kind of to one side. And here saying hm, weird colors, but maybe.... and then huh, that worked! I'm not making any sense this evening, am I? Can I blame it on the Monday thing? Post holidays something or another? #735
