    What a fabulous image. Your choice of texture & tones are brilliant rendering a real aged look. Love it, Chris. Cat:)

  • Thanks so much, Cat. Most of the work was done for me as the wall already had the peeling paint. I appreciate your comments, so happy you like it ; )

    Chris, your capture of the detail here is really fabulous… what a perfectly aged look you have achieved. I was just looking at this viewed larger and all those surfaces have such a variety of texture with some being matte and other having a subtle sheen and you picked them all up…extremely skillful work!

  • Thank you so much, Kat. I was lucky I didn’t have to do that much to this shot, the wall already had the cracked and peeling paint, the light was decent, it was reflecting off of the white walls so that I could get a decent shot with what was available. I have been wanting to do some still life but haven’t been able to set anything up at home. I saw the opportunity here and went for it. I’m so glad you like this, it turned out just how I saw it in my mind.
