Chinese Village Scene
I wanted to create a village scene that was full of late afternoon light and shadow and gave the feeling of another time and place.
The Chinese Village scene derives from one background photograph plus three additional ones for the women working and cloudy sky. The photographs were taken by Patricia Roberts in a small rural village and along the roadsides. I composed the scene in Photoshop. The original photographs were very monotone as it was an overcast day. I added light and shadow and created soft tones to give it a rich feeling.
