I think it’s finished, but I’m going to let it sit for a bit while I back up and start on #30. It’s a bit odd, but I find I like the third version much better when it’s sitting in minimum light. The photo was not in minimum light, so you can’t see how mysterious it looks when the brightness is toned down. If I can figure out a way to do that with paint so it looks deeper even in bright light I might go there.
In the meantime, here’s the background for #30. I have already put the drawing on it in white paint, so it’s ready for its next step. I intend to leave the background alone, although in future photos it may appear more blue-green depending on the light it gets photographed in and which camera I’m using (lazy phone or more complicated SLR).
