Another Weekend Challenge from WetCanvas. Our Jean hosted this one, and offered a selection of images that are really outstanding. I chose, first the Counter Jukebox, then the Landscapes. I was going to combine the landscapes, but render the juke by itself. Until I realized All Three could work together. SO here are the Refs, WIP's, Layers, and the Finished Image - just as I showed at WetCanvas.

Skylar....great interpretation of this challenge....especially the chrome of the jukebox and the buttons with the letters... I imagine they were difficult since they are so mechanical ..to reproduce accurately would be quite a challenge..;);):):):)

Byron, GXH- Thanks, guys!
As far as the no's go, if you enlarge the image, you'll see just how sloppy I was. Long ago, I discovered the more something is reduced, the "cleaner" it looks.

As they say, "A little distance from a subject invites clarity". We might as well appropriate it for our paintings, hey? :)
