As I said on Tuesday - I've found the Digital workshop quite difficult up to now (because of my own limitations). Photoshop is such a huge program; it must take a very long time to master it! But I'm going to persevere and things are starting to get clearer.......and I'm begining to enjoy it (which is always a good sign!)
Here are my first attempts......and the photo above was our very first exercise. DJ gave us a picture with minor flaws that we were shown how to correct - so this isn't a layered piece.
This one is a result of me playing...and not really knowing what I'm doing! I used one of my paintings (the face) and layered a photo of a clematis from my garden plus a colourful piece of embroidery. Finally I added some leaves using the brush tool.
I may print this onto fabric and embellish it with stitches, beads etc.
Another fumbling experiment! Three photos here; a graveyard angel, blossom from my garden and a picture I took of Port Soller in Majorca. Someone kindly commented that it looks like an angel watching over a city by night.
This is the result of a little tutorial I tried to follow (kindly given by one of the talented students on the course). I lost my way a quarter of the way through but it sort of turned out ok-ish.
Today I am going to sit down and READ! Now I have some knowledge of the way the program works I think I'm going to find it easier to read the lesson notes. We can but hope......
