    Multinational

    Watching GX adding new tools to his bag of tricks got my head percolating. The product is an assembledge of images and painted textures involving many layers and assorted blend modes. Not wanting to be left wondering why the painting didn't quite work, I cheated a bit and used a composition template I made for this project. I only wish I could juggle so many elements by eye and have them fall into balance. Instead, I measured everything.

    A superlative composition where graphical shapes and textures are sheer delight to me! I don't know how You artificially set it all together scientifically (as You said), but it does work.

    The Chinese characters add interest ... The two characters "jiēdài 接待" next to the promotional coupons mean "to receive or admit guests" ... a nice touch ...

    Ceasar, it was a bit like nudging the sliding weight on an old balance scale. Assessing the visual "weight" of the various elements was the tricky part.

    Coops, Thanks. I really had fun doing this.
