Stage 3..Week 2.


Hello Folks!  I went artsy fartsy this week. I remembered there are some better art options in Corel, which I haven’t used for a long time, so I bopped between the two programs.  I like it for the possibilities it presents for an art quilt, but not particularly as a photo in and of itself. I’ll work toward that goal next week.

If this looks like fun to you feel free to join us at Robyn’s One Four Challenge on her Captivate Me blog.

Now for the photo art chatter!  Here’s what I did:

Stage 1 in Photoshop

Lightened it up by changing input levels from

[0          1.         255 ]        to        [10        .4         230]

Selective color;

RED – Reduced cyan and increased yellow

NEUTRALS – increased cyan and magenta/decreased yellow

BLUE – reduced black

Stage 2 In Corel

Effects/Art Strokes/Cubist

Stage 3 In PS

Slightly shifted hue toward pink/purple

With Calligraphic straight brush tinted white part of sky pinkish.

The natural world is phenomenal and so much of the man-made world - our architecture, our cities - are stunning accomplishments. They exist hand in hand in both beautiful expressions and sometimes disastrous manifestations. Our entire existence with the natural and the invented is intertwined – each dependent on the other, even as my art evolves, each breathing in the wake of the other. Surface design is one aspect of the process that I love. I thoroughly enjoy the play with color, value and construct, particularly the improvisation which starts with one thing, an idea, a glimpse of a vision, perhaps something that captures my eye for a moment in time and it grows organically. I become focused on whatever piece I'm working on and follow my muse to find my way.

  1. VERY purple which I like, and initially I was a bit overwhelmed but when I saw the subtle texture detail I liked it more. Interesting effect
