A sidestreet in Lagos, Western Algarve
Playing with photoshop!
Now paint it!
I told you that you were clever with a camera and you denied it!!!!
You have to tell me how you did this!
He he he…I forgot to add the original photograph. I shopped this picture some time ago now, so I would need to experiment, but it’s quite useful if you would like to paint and cant draw!
Brilliant idea! I love playing with watercolours but am hopeless at drawing.
Remember when you were at school and you had to trace maps of South America? We used tracing paper, copied the outline in soft pencil on the back, then rubbed it over like a brass rubbing on top of a sheet of white paper to get the original image – the thick kids had a back to front South America 🙂
Well I still do this, tracing over photographs. I need to experiment. I only have the cut down version of Photoshop (Elements) but I’ll bet it can bleed out the colour as you have done.
More things to do on cold winter nights!!
Or you can try lightening the outline and print directly onto and A4 size paper and make a selection of smaller prints 🙂
