Instead of going with the "spotlight/black" background, I wanted this to show some sky, trees and grass without a whole lot of detail - keeping the focus on these wonderful Native Americans. It's going to take a couple more coats of grass and trees before I can remove the masking and begin painting the peeps!
This is much more fun the paint by dot method, can you tell?
Not all things work as planned....
I want a separation here of street, curb, grass and sky. It's going to take another layer or two of grass, curb and street before I can apply the atomizer to create night scene - and that's ok!!!
I didn't use enough water in the paints to keep them wet enough before blending with big brush - and that's OK! Most of the background will be sprayed with black atomizer and hopefully still have the same effect I am looking for.
