Gone to seed vers 3

Hi art friends,

Way back in March, I signed up for Sebastian Michael’s Photoshop Artistry Grunge class.  I’ve learned a ton of techniques, which you may have noticed in my weekly posts. I’ve had to translate his techniques from the Adobe products into Gimp and digiKam.  So far, I’ve been able to take nearly everything he’s taught and apply it in the programs I use.

By the time I got to this image, I’ve probably made 20 or so images.  This one is my favorite so far.  It includes photos of 3 of my mixed media paintings, my own handwriting, one of the images from the October 2016 road trip to Toppenish and Northeastern Oregon.  It incorporates just about every technique covered in the class so far: layer masks, layer options, painting out sections of the layer mask to reveal what’s underneath, and various photographic adjustments.

I like this image so much that I made it available in a variety of prints in my Society6 shop.
