Transforming A Painting Into Photo Art . . .


I created this yesterday on my iPhone.  I discovered a new app called "art studio"  and you can do really cool stuff with photos.  And since I have many images of my paintings including some in progress shots I thought it would be fun to try and see what I could create. 

The first layer is my painting and then I used my fingers to write the words and make some cool smudges on the painting with some white.  It felt like painting in a way.  

The painting below is the image I altered to create the above piece.  
Pretty cool huh?  ;)


In these moments when I don't find myself painting in a traditional way  it feels good to know there are other ways to "paint" that can be as simple as a photo on your iPhone.  

I am sharing today for Paint Party Friday.  Hope you will stop by and check out all the great art being shared!

  2. How cool is that?!?
    (I love scanning in images & progress pics so that I can print them out and play on top... This sounds even better!)

  10. It must be like painting a glass pane. At least, that's what it looks like, especially the white smudges, they seem to have been done on glass.
    Not even in my strangest dreams could technology come to such frontiers.
    Well, have fun with it!
