When you truely experiment, the medium sometimes takes you places you had no idea existed. This was the case with this image and I want to show you the journey.
I’m working on the iPad this morning with the iColorama app. Usually I import a photo or another piece of art and alter it, but today I wanted to use the brushes within iColorama to create a new painting from scratch. The program has a wide variety of brushes. I explored only two or three. I then opened the image in Pixlrama and altered the color balance and texture a bit. Finally I sharpened and altered the contrast in Photogene.
My three paintings in the Paint the Town Exhibit
I finally got to the Elsinore Gallery on the last day of the exhibit and took this photo with my iPod Touch. One of my three paintings was awarded an Honorable Mention. I thought that was pretty cool for my first time out.
