If you go out in the woods today
You’d better not go alone
It’s lovely out in the woods today
But safer to stay at home
From the Teddy Bears’ Picnic by Bratton(melody 1907) & Kennedy(lyrics 1932)
Well, this turned out gloomier that I expected. With half the country gloomy, I must have gotten infected. Once again, click image for larger version.
A print of this is going into the holiday show at the Upstairs Gallery in Arcata. Hard to believe that there is 10 to 15 hours more on this image than the last.
This was a photograph of a green tree frog in a rose in my front yard that I converted to B&W. I then colored it with only three colors using the new glazing brushes in Corel Painter 2017. Turquoise had really been on my mind this morning, hence the choice of color. The overall image was a little flat so I added the luminosity and saturation of the original photograph to complete the transformation.
I’m taking a class about the new features of Painter 2017. Using several of the new features, I’ve turned a straight photograph of the Lion’s Head Maple in my backyard to this. Fun stuff.
