It thrills me, though, that I am putting this wee post together and sharing one of my favourite pieces that I have regaled with texture, playing about, and seeing what happens if...
This little painting of mine I did back in March of 2011, when I was experimenting with incorporating digital images, mildly tweaked, into my collage work.
When I was first learning what adjusting opacity even was or meant or looked like, a young man in Office Depot used a photo of this painting and made it get all kinds of weird. Seeing makes a HUGE difference to understanding!!!
Anyhow, I recently came upon the image and started to play with it again. I did some of it in Picasa and Picnik, per usual, then into PSE8 it went. I used Bonnie's pdpa Leafy Landscape texture twice, and tried out Posterize, just for fun.
Next I took it to Pixlr Express, which, amazingly, has BEcome far less obstreperous since last I played there... Hmmmmmmm, must BE I am learning!! I tried a bunch of things with Overlays and Effects and ultimately found I could probably play with this forever... So I stopped and here is the result.
And Now it is time to fix some supper and get ready to call it a day...
