Another peek : Invasive Species paintings

Part of the assignment is to Photoshop the large paintings into a background. Admittedly, I didn't give that a lot of thought the first time around. In critique class last week, it was suggested I try the tree upside down for a more otherworld look, and have the paintings hanging from ropes. I used a different photo of Trinity-Bellwoods park for this version.

I'm happy with how a low-opacity paint bucket layer using a colour lifted from the sky unified the atmosphere.

It is definitely interesting; almost surreal.
