As The Gentle Rain From Heaven Upon the Place...

:D A challenge for dA's limitation on how many characters a title can be...

Because the whole Shakespeare quote goes like this:

...as the gentle rain from heaven upon the place beneath... (The Merchant of Venice, Act IV, Scene I)

Anyhow, I am not that productive (submitting new stuff yesterday & today too), only I am finishing up some loose threads (a.k.a. WIPs :D) This one was also almost finished except for the curtain. In the end (=yesterday) I gave up and painted it myself :) Not the best I know but hey, it serves its purpose!

What's more it is not even my original idea (turning scarlet). I saw a very similar design except it was pure vector graphics. I remembered the Shakespeare quote at once and for some reason they ate themselves into my brain and could not get rid of the image until I created something similar with real photos - I considered it as a challenge as I had to work with given shapes & colors, etc instead of creating them from scratch for the final idea. To be honest I am totally obsessed with the negative space anyway and now and then it manifests itself in artworks like this.

As for the credits, I am in trouble. I *think* I do have all the elements in my personal collection except for the texture on the curtain but who knows... I am doing my best.
That's why you should keep a running list of your resources, people! (Note to myself.)

Oh, and Marni, there are no birds in this one either... But just wait. :D

I hereby declare that, to the best of my knowledge all other elements are from my legitimate resources/photos or/and painted by me.
