Here is an update on my bird of paradise. Please let me know what ya'll think.
I think it is looking very beautiful cl. What is the top part going to be done in? I see lots of little pieces but they are placed perfectly.
I was thinking about doing the same as the yellow bottom background. What do ya'll think?

Let me try again.
Thank you for reposting the link. It will be gorgeous when done. It is now. tfs
GOOD GRIEF!!! What perfection!!! It's BEAUTIFUL, and oh, so well done. You really have patience to pull something like this off w/so many small pieces. LOVELY, just LOVELY.
Thank ya'll for the kind words. It does take more time than I thought it would.
OH MY!! That is really pretty! So many tiny pieces to work with....amazing!! Talk about patience! Can't wait to see it all done. VERY VERY nice job!!
It is Beautiful!!! How big is this??? I would say you need to do the top however you feel it should be done....How your minds eye sees it done.....It a great piece and i look forward to seeing it finished....
The size is 3' x 5'. I think I am going to do the top the same as the bottom because it follows the color scheme of a patio I'm trying to design around. I am still trying to decide on grout color though. I think I'm going to go with charcoal for the flower but I'm not sure what color to use on the yellow. Any suggestion?
Just looked at your project again, and am so impressed w/your shading. You really are good at this art. You know what you're doing, so just follow your instincts. Since I use charcoal for all my projects, I, of course, am in favor w/your choice of it for this project. Beautiful work, indeed.
Ditto Slow. It is lovely.
Slow, do you think the charcoal would look better with yellow background than white?
Yes, by all means. I haven't used white grout since my first couple mosaics. I HATE white grout. I think charcoal goes w/everything, so I may be biased. Don't like to advise anyone, but since you asked,.........
This is my first mosaic and I've put too much time and effort into this not to take advise from someone more experienced than myself. I appreciate the advise. Thanks.
