I have a friend who loves deeply saturated bright colors. She lent me some linens napkins that really pop, to see how background color works, or not. They were fun to play with, and got me into thinking about the backgrounds I use. However, I don’t think they work. The plant materials get overwhelmed, and all you’re looking at is the background. I posted this on social media, and pretty much got confirmation of this. What do you think?

How the background colors work, or not

This got me thinking about other backgrounds. I still prefer a more neutral field, but it sure is fun playing around.
