This week in art

Another iColorama experiment this week. I use a great photo of a highland cow (aren't they cool?).

cow photo

I thought it would be interesting to apply different effects to different parts of the photo. I took a screen shot of each step.

This is a sketchy effect I applied to the cow.

cow painting

This is a swirly effect I used for the sky.

And this is the effect I used on the grass.

When I put them all together, this is the result.

This week in art

This week I have been playing with portraits in iColorama. Starting with a photo from Pixabay, I created these two different portraits using different features of the app. I'm not sure which one I like best, but I do know I want to do more experimenting with portraits. I especially love working with texture.

This is the photo I started with.

original photo

In iColorama, I used these settings:
- Style / Lighten / 4
- Style / Painterly / VGogh1
- Adjust / ToneLab / 16

painting with iColorama

For the second one, I used these settings:
- Adjust / HDR / 4
- Texture / Noises
- Adjust / Exposure

A new portrait this week, as well as two mandalas.

Similar to the portrait I did last week, this painting started with a photo from Pixabay, with textures and framing added in iColorama, finally blended with one of my colourful backgrounds in Procreate.

Digital portrait

These are two mandalas created in iOrnament and coloured in Procreate.
