NatureFootsteps Abstract


This is where it began ...

Okay, but more I can do ...
So I started to play .... changing colors, adding a pattern with decreased opacity and shearing it.


Finally I changed color again, used the watercolor filter, the distort/polar coordinates filters.  Then I pulled up a blank sheet and added the picture three times at different angles and blended it.  Added some light and there you have it.  I know there are steps I missed, but when I am doing it, I don't keep track because it interferes with the process.  This should give you the idea of my process, which is never the same twice.

  8. lol, Love all of it. It is quite amazing to see what we can do with an image. There is no trace of the first bud in the last abstract. I could hang it on my wall without hesitation. :)
