I decided to work with new landscape photos of Montana (thank you, Karen!) combined with old photos of Livingston, Montana. I hadn't worked with old photographs for awhile, so it was fun to figure out what to do with them and the mountain scene in this 14 x 11 canvas. I printed out one photo of the landscape unaltered and one with an ink edges filter applied to the image. I wanted to add some grassy paper to the bottom left, but only had green - nothing autumnal. And then, the lightbulb went on – I could paint the paper! So, I painted acrylic gold and brown onto the green grassy paper and then added them to the composition when the paint was dry. :-)
