|Former Background Photo|
I knew I had a lot of garden photos from visiting the Powerscourt Estate in Ireland a few years ago; I went through and found the one below to use as a model. I could have used the photo as is but decided to do a literal wash of color, with watercolor paint.
Keeping in mind that the painting was going to be cropped plus have the edges whitened to blend with backgrounds here and in my social media sites, I created the following watercolor.
For the blog, I ended up using a fade at both the right side and the bottom to get it to look the best on different monitors/platforms. I changed the colors on the blog to match the colors in the watercolor. I hope you like the changes!
