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.
I’ve played quite a bit with this one. Just last night, I figured out what I needed to do to get it the way that I wanted. Finally done.
While getting things ready for my 70th birthday, I futzed around with this. Holy crap, can I really be this old. Honestly, during the Cold War I never thought I’d make it out of my 30’s. Birthday is in a few days.
