Blue Sky Collaboration-Rejected Idea

© Ellen Blonder and Lisa Blonder Ohlenkamp
I had thought Lisa's sky (see August 27, 2009, post) would be the perfect background for a painting of the barn behind the house where I grew up. With flat farmland all around, the sky was always very big, and often dramatic.
Part of the allure of Photoshop is that one can make quick "sketches" to see if an idea will work. I dropped in a photo of the barn and added some quick color details and cloned clouds. It's not interesting enough for me. I'll have to think of something else.

  1. I like this very much. But what about a hint of color somewhere? Maybe essence of wild red poppies? I would not disregard the sky with this. I think it could work.
