The dance with Photoshop continues!

I am continuing on  my adventures with Photoshop and my various classes.  I have been taking an Advanced Brushes class with Anna Aspnes and have been learning lots about creating and using brushes in Photoshop.  So interesting.  I created this piece from one of my France photos from a few years ago.



As one approaches the Musee d'Orsay, the time is displayed on a large clock face on the Museum's wall.  Quite lovely.  But even more interesting is the room one enters whilst touring the museum, the room that houses the clock itself.  In this room, one looks out on a view of Sacre Coeur, seen through the clock face itself.  And the silhouette of the clock against the sky is exquisite.  This is my rendition of the clock face, using several brushes that I made and various blend modes in Photoshop, starting with my photo of the clock face and the distant view.  Still a long way to go in terms of the learning but such fun to play with what I am learning so far!!!

Oh, and I made myself a brush that allows me to create a stitched line, that curves and sweeps wherever I want!!  More fun!!!

  1. Another fascinating and complex image ... How clever you are!
    I'm just about to sign up for the Pixeladies new 3rd course PSE3 which should be good and happens to coincide nicely with some relatively quiet time at home - not always true!

  2. Thanks, Margaret. I am having fun discovering all (well, at least 'some') of the possibilities of Photoshop. And indeed, I hope you will have some 'quiet time' to fully enjoy the new course you'll be taking. Learning is the best!!! Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Thanks, Sharron. Photoshop has certainly helped me get through my periods of non-activity! And now I'm hoping to actually get out dancing, well, if not dancing, at least lots of walking!! Yay!!
