Secluded Forest

I got chatting with a couple at the bar and they asked if I could do a scene within the Wisconsin state. They are going to give this as a gift and the gentleman is a big outdoors person. So rather than leave the background plain I used Bob’s wood effect.

The wood grain looks real and the crisp edges of the state are great! The scene is perfect as expected! 🖖

Hehe thanks Nancy

I find that the cut out contact paper does leave a "too white" area surrounding the pictures once one remove it. This is a beautiful painting and a great effect with the wood finish. I am going to attempt a North Carolina cut out. We have western mountains, central flat lands, and eastern beaches. Wondering how I can fit them all in it. Giving me some good ideas Mgiese84!

Thanks much Doc

When I watched Bob use the wood technique I didn't understand how it would make sense in any context. This is very inspiring however. Thanks for giving me future ideas. Also, I love the contrast of the trees against the deep background color.

Thanks Jarrod. I used the wood technique here because I felt it help made the background less boring lol. And it fit the scene pretty well.
