One Four Challenge, Week 4

One Four Challenge, Week 4

The final December post for our One Four Challenge – it’s been so much fun thanks to  Robyn Gosby!

I soooo needed to work with this image in a different color! For this version, I went back to the original, first crop before I played with any sky and without any filtering of the texture.

I converted it to B&W and increased the gamma and offset, added a new layer, Locofilm 5 in B&W with some curves play and more gamma. Then,  another layer of the same pic with some hue adjustments.

I then put it on waterpaper (PS) with a low fiber content and high contrast & brightness and we’ve come to the end of this photo journey!

And thanks to Marsha for letting me know how to create this photo slideshow gallery!

Sketches For New Textile Art

I can’t show the  Christmas gifts I’ve been busy with for the last few weeks – don’t want to ruin any surprises. So, I’ve been working on some cut and paste-up sketches for a possible new series.

Of course, whenever I have at it, they’re all quite subject to change, but I think this is a good start. Oh yea, I also worked up a color version for one them.
