Bird at the Beach

Obsessed with 3D?  Yes.  Another wool-punched fabric bird made whole in the computer, combined with layer after layer on top of a photo taken at Muir beach.

3D Fabric Bird in Photo Composited Bucket

I'm newly enamored with the 3D feature in Photoshop CC.  Hence this 3D bird with cast shadow rendering of a previously created fabric wool punched and embroidered bird, which I then added to a photo of a bucket taken in Mendocino, already combined with another picture of the algae in Abbotts Lagoon.  Digital manipulation provides hours and hours of fun!  Especially since 3D rendering seems to take 1 1/2 hours at minimum.

Playing Ball at Stinson Beach

This took all day!  First drawing my wooden models, then painting them, then trying to figure out 3D in Photoshop so I could create real looking shadows.  I need a longer 3D lesson.  So much I don't know.

Old Art and New Photos Come Together as One

Trying something different compositing art with photos both in camera and digitally in Photoshop. Top image was done in camera in multiple exposure mode - shooting the original art and a copy of the photo printed in the same size as the original painting, then edited in Lightroom and Photoshop. 2nd from top is a digital blending of the two bottom pieces with minimal editing in Photoshop.

San Anselmo Creek Meets Albion Forest

I was invited by the San Anselmo Arts Commission to paint at "Music in the Park" - a weekly Sunday event at Creek Park in downtown San Anselmo from July 31 to August 28.  So yesterday, I packed up my pen & ink & watercolor gear and headed out.  I was the only person doing any art that I noticed, but there were a lot of other people enjoying themselves.  The band was the Lonestar Retrobates - playing retro big band style music.  It was all very enjoyable.  My result was the 7"x10" image above. This was scanned and enlarged to approx. 13" x 20" and merged with a forest picture shot in Albion earlier this month.  Two nice memories merged into one!
