After spending some time in Derbyshire last weekend I couldn’t help but be inspired by the beauty of being outdoors. Although the weather forecast suggested heavy rain, the weather was tolerable and there were plenty of opportunities to take photographs which of course I did. I have selected my four favourite compositions which I will be using to decorate wooden candle holders but you can use more if you prefer extra detail or a contrast of images on each holder.
Blue is always a nice base colour for landscapes because it provides a harmonious colour balance overall.
Finally, I have applied a coat of acrylic varnish over the wooden candle holders after leaving them to dry for 24 hours. You can also use an oil-based varnish if you want to have a transparent background and see more of the base colour through your prints. Why not try using brighter background colours for a bolder look or multiple colours on each candle holder to create vibrant landscapes.
