Out in the open -

"Dining Al Fresco"
digital collage by Mick Mather
Sometimes, when a period of less strenuous activity is called for, I go back to old, familiar working methods. Last week I embarked on a handful of old school digital collage pieces using said tried and true methods. This is one of them.

The sun shines east, the sun shines west, but I know where the sun shines best...
outside!!

It looks sunny in your pic, and that's important.

I like this one. It has a lot of movement in it, accentuated by the play of light. You can feel the people eating, talking, smoking, nice work Mick.

Once again I say thank you (blush!) for these words. I particularly liked the wet-on-wet watercolor look to it even though the main figure looks a bit cartoonish. :)

As I mention above in my reply to Shani, the wet-on-wet look has it's way with the work; as you point out it's magnified by the dramatic use of light and dark. :)

Ok, everyone has beaten me to it so I will raise my hand in quite agreement that the light here is perfect. I wish I was standing in it too!
