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 !

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.

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.

Todays bit of surrealist fun is another of my colourised vintage photographs – with bits and pieces added from my own personal photographic collection.
Planning a whole series of this type of image – for no other reason than enjoying being creative 🙂

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.

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
..and the leaves that were green turn to brown… a line from a Paul Simon song.
So it’s autumn and the leaves are changing colour now and I thought I would do a digital painting to celebrate the fact.
A bit more of a a subtle digital painting this time.
The leaves WERE actually green and I HAVE turned then to brown – does that make me Mother Nature or a picture manipulator?
Thanks Mr. Simon for the inspiration.

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 🙂
Here is the latest picture from the recent shoot with Melanie Doyle and Sarah Reed
It’s so rewarding working with like minded people who go the extra mile to achieve the “shot” that is lurking somewhere in the back of my mind – both Melanie & Sarah were and are a dream to work with and be around.
I think I am going to call this “The Secret Garden” unless I think of a Queenly title – thought of Queen Of The Fairies… but should she have wings??
There are lots more to come from this shoot and its spawned more ideas for future themes 🙂
