Day 140

Another long evening spent sorting Expo cloth spreadsheets, so tonight I did some image manipulation. I went through my photos, looking for ones which would make good masks. I feel like I’m getting a better eye for good candidates now.

This was the mask photo:

 

To this mask:

 

 

Which I combined with this photo of a Spanish sky:

 

To get this image:

  

Rather dynamic, almost feels like a quilt and some appliqué. I did it with triangles and some messing with colours.

And then this mask of pebbles between beach groynes:

  

With this rather uninspiring photo from an aeroplane window:

 

(They never come out as beautifully as the view!)

To this:

 

This one took a bit of work to get it to feel cohesive. I eventually took the mask off and then did a Glass effect over the whole thing, but a bit less opaque to allow the layers underneath to show through.

And lastly, a photo of carved faces in Alcoi, as part of the Moors and Christians festival:

 

 

With my favourite swoopy paint background, and some gentle messing with colours:

 

 All in all, a lot of fun,
