Continuing my exploration of creative “painting” using a combination of Corel Painter 2016 and Photoshop brings me to my latest portrait.
Over the years people have asked me why I don’t do “proper photography”, why do I have to mess about with the picture ! Well in fact I do do proper photography … all the time ! I enjoy taking “straight” images whether it be nature, landscapes, fine art nudes or portraits and in fact have had success in national and international competitions with those images. But for me, that first straight photographic image is just a means to an end – in other words, its just the beginning of the journey.
This picture started as a studio shot but I knew I wanted to do more with it… so I used it as my “blank canvas” – a starting point to paint on to create a more ethereal image.
I am well on my way now but…. if you are interested in joining me on my journey via the wonderful world of Corel Painter please click on the FOLLOW JOAN BLEASE PHOTOGRAPHY” tab on this page (top right) or LIKE the FACEBOOK page or click on the white button to FOLLOW THE BLOG VIA EMAIL
