Last week I had the pleasure of introducing a fellow artist to digital art. We had a wonderful time and since then I’ve enjoyed seeing her continue to get creative with the medium. I thought I’d share with you a few of the images from our afternoon. I did introduce some techniques for creating digital art on a blank page (canvas, if you will) as well as introduced her to fractal artwork but the bulk of our time was spent with photo manipulations. This first one and we basically just played with the various filters in Photoshop on a single image to make it into something more artistic. This is what we came up with:
The next creation we used three different images and layered, altered and blended them into something new:
Pretty cool! We were both pleased with how this one turned out!
At her request I had been “running” the computer and doing the work while she watched, took notes, asked questions and gave input on the creations. For the final photo manipulation of the day I put her in the “drivers seat” and watched/guided her through the process. She did an amazing job!
How awesome is THAT!?!
I really enjoy sharing through teaching! You are always welcome to email or call me with a request for a class. There is also a calendar on my website that shows dates that I am available for instruction, as well as a page with the various topics that I am happy to share. Don’t see a date or topic you’re looking for on there? Just ask!
