The devil is in the details…..

 

It’s interesting how we become so close to our art work that we can’t see it!

Here’s an example of something I thought was done until I blogged about it, then, when I read it the next day…..I don’t think so!  I had “floating” tomatoes…..don’t worry it’s not contagious but it is an example of my not seeing the details.

This is what I thought was finished…….

See that white space under the tomatoes?  They need a shadow, something dark to “ground” them or they look like they are floating….but you knew that!

IMG_1755That’s better!  I, also, shaded around the word tomato to give the letters depth and make them stand out a bit more!

See, the devil is in the details!  There is a fine line between being too picky and fixing, sometimes……given a few days I’ll probably see more things I need to “fix”.

Well; I find this spread gorgeous. I understand what you're saying and sometimes I have to leave things aside for a bit, until I actually see those little details. I get so wrapped up in what I'm doing at the time. Your shading under the tomatoes certainly gave them more depth - fabulous! xxoo

If I only blogged for the chance to see what I'm really doing it would be enough. I'm so glad to put it out there and then bring it back for the added touches. Wish I could see it in the before but it doesn't seem to happen that way. Glad I'm not alone.
The fix is great. Thanks for bringing us back.
