I was going to post a different photo for today, however, my friend over at Lost and Taken posted some new vintage wallpaper samples for download. I just had to use one for today’s post. I didn’t have a subject for the photo but found these chopsticks in the utensil drawer and decided they would go nicely with the blue bowl. I made a slight change and used a pallette knife tool instead of the watercolor tool to change the texture and feel. It is definately more painterly and the background seems to intergrate better into the overall photo. I really wanted the focus to be on the tips of the chopsticks to emphasize the sqaureness. I think it succeeds in that aspect. I also like the light and shadow of the bowl. I am not sure where these are taking me, but it is fun exploring new ideas.
