It’s quite a while since I visited the surreal world I inhabited a few years ago… so I thought it was time to packed my Photoshop bag of tricks and revisit it.
Don’t know if there is going to be a dark theme but do know its going to be on the surreal side.
Thought I would add a bit of colour today because its dreary and wet outside.
The landscape is Iceland and was taken whilst driving across country (I wasn’t driving by the way !)
Well, it’s a long time since I put together a composite picture and an even longer time since this lady had an airing.
Very dark image for me and absolutely no green anywhere 🙂
Not doing very much in the way of producing images for competitions these day …but need to keep my compositing “skills” going…. thus this new image
Today’s digital painting, this time the backstreets of Venice.
Yes it started as a photograph and if it had stayed that way, I would suggest, it would have been as exactly the same as everyone else’s picture who stood in the same spot as I did.
Some people get hot under the collar when someone “messes” with a photograph (it’s not proper photography) – but I applaud those who do – go for it, do more, push those boundaries !
We are making art for the 21st Century
A bit of a departure for me today as I attempted a more abstract portrait – again featuring the very lovely Stephanie Dubois
These creative digital portraits are for my own enjoyment and not for competition – so I can work away to my hearts content not wondering if the picture will catch the judge’s eye 🙂
Another day… another portrait ! This time it’s the turn of the lovely Stephanie who is the queen of the flowers.
I have so many studio photographs I would like to give a painterly treatment to…. its just a matter of choosing which one 🙂
Another day another portrait ! This time the very lovely Carolina who I had the pleasure of photographing earlier this year
I wanted the picture to have a real painterly look about it with bold brash marks as if I had attacked the canvas with a brush heavily loaded with paint
However, here I am sitting quietly in my room gently dabbing at my Wacom Tablet – Digital art is much gentler and when you make a mistake (which I often do) it’s easy to delete and start again…. bliss
