Theme: Selective Focus

I know I’m taking the easy route on this one but I have another I was working on at home, and will finish this week I hope.

From the blueberry patch (harvest is good this week)
I like this, something about the colors I think! S-

Re: Minnie's 2020 52 Project

This week's theme: Something About Me I made this mess of a thing from a picture of the country house, a couple of old pictures of me as a kid, a picture of me a couple of weeks ago, all smashed up over a picture of one of the artworks that's been there for nearly a century, one of my aunt's painti...

Re: Piet's 2020 52 Birds

The image is beautiful. I'm partial to the bluish one which seems more suited to a mockingbird's persona. But the technical and artistic work is great on them both. I prefer the first as well, but find it interesting to see the other variations that are possible as well. It's amazing what a slight ...

Re: Piet's 2020 52 Birds

week 24, revisiting an older entry as a do over (don't get me wrong, I like the other version very much). Mocking bird, using a mixer brush to remove photographic detail and texture - trying to follow the feather flow. I don't care for my color work or the background it too much, but here it is. Mo...

Re: Piet's 2020 52 Birds

... I will definitely let you know how it goes and if my feelings change. I summarize it as it is doing for me with digital painting and art what Awake did for me in getting comfortable with PS and textures in general. For the first time - I feel like I am moving forward again with confidence. She ...

Re: Piet's 2020 52 Birds

thanks Steve, Paula, Frank - Week 23 - Egret, saw this one this morning and happened to be able to be close enough when it took off. Tried to be more gentle in processing including running a mixer brush over the whole thing to get rid of some noise and detail.egretS.jpg I'd swear these are painting...

Re: Piet's 2020 52 Birds

week 22 - red headed woodpecker - might have too much detail in the tree. One thing I tried was the black and white filter and then set the results to luminosity and played with the sliders. The process seemed to result in getting a little more detail out of the breast feathers.redheadS.jpg I'm jea...

Re: Minnie's 2020 52 Project

Theme - In My Kitchen Since I have two kitchens, one here and one at the country house, I did several. Here's the first. The main part of it is generated by a PS action called Squicker that I would like if it worked. Like most of my PS actions, it quits after one or two steps and starts telling me ...
