Now, afterwards I got to thinking. Was it fair to suggest that he do something to his lovely buildings without first hand knowledge of the results? After all, I imagined that it would go well, but I had never done it myself.
So, the next day at lunch, I knocked together a little photo background using some super glue and various paper and card found in my office. I then painted it, and like all projects of mine, it sat waiting for some free time to appear.
|Here is the background without the added litter|
As it turned out, I did need to repaint the litter concoction, which is why it took me so long to get this posted. Adding a bit of paint, ink, and pastels on the top of the litter really helped, although I could have probably mixed those in the beginning to save time.
I think that it took about an hour worth of time to build and paint the photo-background (most of that agonizing over the graffiti), and about 10 minutes to do the litter. I think it adds to the look of the piece though, but what do you think?
