Like most artists I know, I love Frida.
I studied her in school, read the books, saw the movie and
last year Val & I went to her great show at the Bowers. here.
Today I came across an old photo ...
Everything about this photo, to me, is perfection.
So if that's true, why mess with it?
A valid question.
Because I can, without harming the beautiful original.
And, because I get to play and learn at the same time.
I flipped, cropped, posterized, desaturated, drew,
colored in layers, having fun all the way ...
Photoshop people often ask about layers ... above is 3.
Playing and experimenting ... above is 5 layers.
I stopped at 8 layers.
The hard part is knowing when to stop.
Easy, I have laundry to do!
I really appreciate your stopping by,
I'd love to hear your thoughts or suggestions,
just me here doing laundry!
Wishing you a wonderful weekend ahead.
A smile for Friday ...
