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?

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?

RE: Bird of Paradise WIP

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.

RE: Bird of Paradise WIP

Slow, do you think the charcoal would look better with yellow background than white?


 o
RE: Bird of Paradise WIP

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,.........

RE: Bird of Paradise WIP

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.
