This challenge will be to simplify or change the background in order to make the subject stand out. Here's a peacock photo I took at Mayfield Park in Austin, TX. As you can see, the peacock doesn't stand out against the background, even though it's a good photo of the bird itself. You can use my photo and simplify/change the background, or invent your own background using your own photo or imagination. Make sure the lighting in both photos are consistent. Have fun!
Please be sure to follow the spirit and the letter of the challenge.
For example, each submission must be painted after the challenge is posted.
