Thanks Ralf. Very clear colors. But, the look of it is a bit too soft
for me using pastel colors. It's an interesting proposal, but I have
trouble finding the right path from this junction - where to go with the
pastel colors, that is.

I did a mockup for the wallpaper, as I've said before. After sleeping on
it for a day or so, I would like to make it available. It's a very
classic design, for me. The one I did for 13.10 has much resemblance to
the technique with colors and shades (though I used a single color and a
pattern for 1310). Using this design I feel it could benefit from a bit
more complexity, so I'm not satisfied, but I still feel it could work
somehow as a basis for a unified design. See for yourselves.

I've put my mockup in the branch ubuntustudio-artwork. Get it with:

bzr branch lp:ubuntustudio-artwork

Then, you'll find the mockups in the dir:


I'll also put Ralfs stuff in there in a moment.
