When I write, paint, photograph or otherwise create, I love incorporating two different sides of things.
Tomoka State Park on the East Coast of Florida is a great place for nature lovers. This was an ordinary photo I took, and then made it into a digital painting with bright colors.
With this image I was attempting to get an old-fashioned feel. I think it appears to look more like a woodblock print.
Even though using Photoshop can sometimes make a photo too “pixelated” or make it obvious it’s been manipulated, such as this photo here, it’s still fun to experiment.
Taking an average photo and experimenting with monochromatic colors is one way to keep a photo simple.
I made these a few years ago as poster calendars. These models were fantastic to work with, and the horses were beauties as well.
These are still available as posters.
The title of this piece reflects what I did to this photo. Needing a little more than the traditional blues and yellows, I painted the sky by adding bright pink using Photoshop.
Red sky at night is a sailor’s delight! This was another of the tradition photos I took of a Florida river around sunset. I felt that it needed more “oomph” so I tweaked it in Photoshop until I was happy with it.
Prints can be purchased here.
This was a photo I took in the middle of the day, but I thought it was a boring picture. So I added dramatic color with Photoshop. Now I think it tells a better story.
