Bonfire in the landscape?

Why not.

Nothing like a bonfire at the ocean.

Here’s a sandwiching of the painting in my previous post and a photo of a friend gesturing with arms up at a bonfire.

“Sandwiching” is my term for “layering.”

Here’s how I did it using Adobe Photoshop:

1. Reduce the size of both images from large files to 380 pixels wide.
2. Put one image on top of the other and change the opacity of one image to 40%.
3. To reduce loading time I chose “save for web.”

My example is basic sandwiching. This could be the beginning of multiple multiple layers.
