Whilst messing around with Photoshop and ‘chatting’ with a fellow team member ‘I decided to experiment with backgrounds. Always striving for better ways to present a painting, hopefully, to encourage the viewer to experience the really ‘need to have it’ feeling.
After all it is just like serving up a dish of the most delicious food; it can taste absolutely awful but look amazing! Now, I am not suggesting that my paintings look amazing but are really awful…. No, I shall stop right there before I dig myself an enormous hole out of which, I will not manage to get out!!!!
So, within Photoshop is a feature that allows you to render a picture to show various types of background lighting. For instance, floodlight, spotlight etc. You can also decide on the colour you want which can enhance the painting.
It makes the presentation of the painting that much more fun and I have some of my latest listings from Etsy for you to look at and decide for yourself!
The above are ACEOs with slightly differing lighting for background.
Here are some paintings with a new look!
So, what do you think? I have a way to go yet but I am very pleased with the progress made today!
