NYC Inspired Black and White Photo Art

I am back to my former love!  I got out some of my NYC black and white photography and used it in these  new photo art pieces.  All I used was some black and white paint, a sharpie, and a white out pen for all the details. They were super fun and quick to create.  

I miss incorporating my photos in my art.  Some of you may recall my article published in Somerset Studio last fall that was all about creating black and white photo art.  You can check out that post HERE!

The techniques I used in these pieces were from Julie Prichard's "Mixed Media Variety Hour" online workshop.  I shared another similar piece in yesterday's post.  To view that post click HERE.  

 Sharing today over at Paint Party Friday.  If you haven't joined us yet please do!  Thanks as always to Eva and Kristin for hosting this great party every week!

I am thinking these will look cool framed.  I may do just that and hang them up in our living room.

    Congrats on being published! I wonder if I have that issue! I'll go look!;-) It's always so much fun to learn "I know" artists in these magazines!

  9. art based on photos is so cool and yours are really awesome! NY is such a great theme

  10. I love incorporating photos into art--these are very cool--they are definitely paintings, but have that very 'graphic' feel to them...

  11. So effective. I love these. Great textures. I am in that Julie Prichard class, but I haven't gotten there yet. You have inspired me to check in over the weekend.
