ADDING BLUE TO" BIRD'S EYE VIEW"

BIRD'S EYE VIEW
My friend, Suzie Althens, a gifted and well-known Alaskan artist, suggested I practice glazing blue into the background of a copy of this painting before attempting it on the original.  Great advice!  (And that's what I love about networking with other artists...LOTS of free great advice!)   Using Photoshop and a better photo of the painting, I glazed in a translucent blue behind the mesas.  See for yourself - the top photo has no blue added.  The background definitely recedes in the bottom photo.  Thanks, Suzie, for your excellent advice.  I'm off to give it a go!
