1  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 6 ENTRIES / Saudi Sunset on: October 10, 2005 11:30:23 AM



Last week when I was sorting out my photos, I found a bunch of fuzzy, out of focus pictures of the desert and some other scenes of Saudi Arabia (my family and I used to live in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia. My parents worked for an oil company there) from I think it was 1990 or so. I was just going to shred the pictures because I culled out the good ones, but then decided to use them for this challenge. All I did was rip up the photos based on the pictures and the colors.

What I tried to do was make it look like a sunset. I remember seeing the sun look like a huge orange ball resting on the horizon. The colors I remember were brown, a little blue but mostly the giant orange sun. I found some pictures of our Christmas tree in Saudi that had the right color to it, and then I added a bit of paint to all the layers...a bit of dark brown for the bottom, light brown on top and then the blue for the sky. I think it turned out okay. It actually really looks better in the photo than in person, because you can't see how blurry the photos really are. That photo of the Saudi man is really not in focus at all, but it looks fine in this photo.
