The Way Forward

 

Over the last 10 years I have been bound by the constraints of national and international competition rules.  But now, as I feel that I am about to break free from those restraining boundaries, I feel that I am throwing open the doors to a whole new world. Anything goes – I can be as creative and artistic as my imagination will allow.

Over the last couple of years I have had work published Internationally and have had my art (yes, I do consider digital art to be art) hung in exhibitions and have been fortunate enough to have sold the images that were on show.

So what next? From here on in I will be posting my new work (and tutorials on how they were constructed) via this website Joan Blease Photography or via my Instagram site listed as joanblease3 so if you haven’t already signed up to follow my blog etc please log onto those sites and click onto the FOLLOW button- that way you will be able to see my latest creations as they are (and how they are) ….. created !!

I won’t be uploading all of my new creations on  Facebook anymore, but if you have enjoyed seeing what I have produced over the years please follow me on the other two sites.

Hope to see you soon 🙂

THE GIRL V3a

 

 

 

Bygone Beauty

A quiet few minutes doing some more colourising of old photos before a very busy weekend.

I don’t know about you but I think this lady is so beautiful and there is so much emotion in her face.

The model is “looking out of the frame” a no no for some people today but, as far as I am concerned,  I think the photographer who captured this lady’s beauty, got the feeling and emotion spot on -even if she wasn’t looking at the camera !

 

Lady In Blue

I am totally new to colorising old photographs – but learning all the time.

Sometimes the colours I use “drop” into place quite easily.  Sometimes, if I am having difficulty, I have to do a little research to get an idea as to what colours the people were wearing in those bygone days.

Either way it’s a lot of fun

 

 

Lady From The Past

Today I have concentrated on colourising a portrait – skin tones are always very difficult and also trying to bring a sparkle back into the eyes.

First colorised portrait I have attempted… and still learning as I go along.

Children From The Past

Today I have concentrated on colorising these two little children – I still have to wonder who they were and where their lives took them. Obviously I will never know.

A little bit of added surrealism makes the difference to this picture..  Well I think so anyway.
