Studio 365: Day 2

Studio 365 day two and given this week’s Photo Challenge: New from Michelle, the perfect opportunity to share a new painting in association with my new goal of posting a photo from the studio each day of the year, a new header and the second day of a new year. What could be a better start? The view is from the Liquidity Winery in beautiful British Columbia’s Okanagan. It’s not yet finished, but it’s well on the way.

From Light Painting to Masks

Nothing like a little experimentation. Yesterday it was Light Painting, today it’s all about learning to understand masks. This is my second attempt at masking using Photoshop Elements. The first was putting our hiking boots on Machu Picchu in These Boots Were Made For Walking. The photo of the boots was in fact taken at home and then added to the Machu Picchu panorama. Today I have added the sunflowers from our deck to the glorious view from the Liquidity Winery in the Okanagan. The final image seemed too good not to share. I hope you agree…
