View Full Version : Just curious...

In my quest to learn how to loosen up, I decided to take the image of the original (on the left) and manipulate it in one of my editing programs to see what softer edges may look like. I know I may have overworked this but it's interesting to play with your original to see how something may have been. I'm just curious as to which one of these make for a more interesting piece?

"Art is a jealous mistress and if a man has a genius for painting, poetry, music, architecture or philosophy, he makes a bad husband and an ill provider."
Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1888), American essayist, critic, and philosopher.

Opinions huh. Well, I'd say somewhere in between the two. I would have chosen some different places to soften and would not have gone so far at the bottom. Lost and found, soft and crisp, some tough decision making goes on here. I neveer thought of using the computer to help with this. I gotta get some software other than Windows Paint! What tools this box can provide!

I like the idea but it looks a bit wild in one area of the painting. I think if you quietened the effect and used it more throughout that picture, it might work better.
