Friday, I gathered up all of my strength to ignore the couch's siren call and got to work. Recently I have found a bunch of really fun photoshopping websites where you can upload pictures and mess around with them. It has opened a whole new world of possibilities for me! Now, pictures I never thought I could paint, I can! The little effects you can do help me break down the painting into something more linear that I can wrap my head (and brush) around. I'm so excited! Had I not found these sites, I probably would have turned down my coworker's request for it.
Here's the picture Pat gave me of her house:
And here it is after I photoshopped it:
Let the games begin....
