Digital media development LO2 part 12

a continuation of my digital media sketchbook

     

here is a printmaking piece of a flower which shall be the background of the portrait sketch above.

 the difference tool was obviously used first here and i like the spotted pebbled look that the technique has given to the background. i also like how the background has added deeper detail to the portraits skin and the overall colours mix brilliantly together.

 I then edited the ‘difference’ image further by using the tones of yellow via the gradient map tool. the flower in the background makes the portrait look as though she has butterfly wings. The use of one colour has created an overall abstract feel and almost looks as though the image was made with sand.

 I had also edited the ‘difference’ image with the photo filter. I chose an orange filter to shadow the image and I feel that this has highly improved the attractiveness of this work. not too dark but enough to give the portrait an air of mystery.

the photo filter can be accessed via here: -

TAS update

Well as you all know I am taking part in the temporary art school project and a few more classes have been added to the mix. So on top of the current classes I shall be attending I am also attending DRAW: in the beginning and also DRAW: in the end.

Also as far as my exploratory techniques go I have decided against manipulating backgrounds in to my paintings (im a wink and scared I will destroy them!) And therefore creating four new paintings and here is a little taster
