Here is an example of the wonders of Photoshop. The before is a photo I took of the Manhattan bridge while crossing it and the after photo is the same shot with a nice filter thrown onto it. I wish I could tell you what was done but my rep did it to show me what we could do with some of my NYC photos. It probably is a sepia wash with some noise thrown onto it. Or maybe it's an ancient Chinese secret and I'll never know it. Which ever it is... me likey!
This is a study of some fashion dresses for a project I'm struggling with. I was a student at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising many years ago and this brought back so many memories. (Just the good ones because I left most of the bad ones at the train station on my last day there.) Now, how to get this onto a canvas... hmmmmm.
I am so grateful for four loads of clean laundry, a sleeping child and new tubes of paint!
