A customer asked me if I could make a dragon bracelet in the colors of sand and beach and surf and this is what I concocted. I mixed a sandy tan in with some turquoise and deep marine blue (the sparkling crests of waves and the deep troughs of color), added some sky blue and a little touch of the white of a couple fluffy clouds. Stirred them all together into a kaleidoscope of color and pattern, and came up with this:
I am so drawn to these colors, I think I will take it a bit further and see what else pops. Speaking of popping, which do you think works better in the photo: a patterned background like the photo above or a plain one like below?
The general consensus in some of the groups I belong to has been a plain, neutral background. My eye is more drawn to the patterned photo, though. Opinions?
