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.

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.

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.
