Well, the Art du Jour really went in a different direction today. I love to read my zines and I was reading in the current of Cloth paper Scissors issue that is a great article called Photo, Paint, Stitch by Kelli Nina Perkins. I love this process of taking a still life picture and sketching the outline and adding your own paint colors. Love that book she made too. So Mattie Lou muse and I decided to try it so I took a picture of a still life I threw together then used Photoshop to turn it into a line drawing then painted it in watercolor---twice. It was fun. Really fun. Surprisingly...fun! But I just realized by looking at the pic again that one pear was green--oh well, artistic license as Kelli says to do in the article.
If any one is interested in how to do turn photos into a line drawing in Photoshop let me know and I will post it.
