Breaking The Rules

I love creating pictures that “break the rules”

I was told that (in competition) judges don’t like green and they don’t like the subject matter placed slap bang in the middle of the picture.

This one breaks both of those rules and it has been very successful in competition.

Are you are a rule breaker?? I would love to see your examples of a successful image that doesn’t conform to the conventional set…….

 

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 !

 

Creative Portrait # 2

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 🙂

More Digital Painting

Todays digital painting is from a photo I took last year of the very lovely Fredau Wallace – the original photograph  gained a Silver Medal and Best Portrait in the recent Northern Counties International Salon

A Sensual World chalk

 

I wondered what the photo would look like if I painted it digitally using soft chalks……  now I know 🙂
