|Blue writing or...|
Good friends Jim and Kathy recently began to travel the U.S.A. by RV. They sent Husband Andy and I a photo of a sign they saw posted outside another RV. Am so happy to work on their sign! It's a deceptively simple design that has had a few challenges but has been fun the entire way.
Because it is a sign specifically for Jim and Kathy, there were a couple of decision points along the way. Where do you prefer the shark fins? What color writing do you prefer? All decisions were done via text messages and texted photos (yay for smartphones!). The latter decision is not shown here...because I made the executive artist decision on the color of the writing.
As Husband Andy pointed out to me, neither the blue writing nor the gold writing stands out very well against the background of the palm tree and calm ocean. That leaves just one color to use for the writing. Can you guess which color was used?
Next post will have the finished design...before it a heavy clear glossy coat is added to protect it from weather. Maybe you'd've guessed the color of the writing by then?
