Re­turn­ing from the ex­per­i­ment

ImagineFX - - In Depth Master Light -

I drop the ex­per­i­ment. Although I lost some time, be­cause I pushed it so far I’m able to see by con­trast that my paint­ing will need a colour and de­sign re-eval­u­a­tion to ‘pop’ more. I of­ten use a sim­i­lar think­ing, for ex­am­ple, adding an adjustment layer that boosts the con­trast. Tog­gle this layer on and off, and from the con­trast you may see that the orig­i­nal is far too dull.

In­clud­ing a set­ting

This is a plein air paint­ing I painted dig­i­tally dur­ing some trav­els in In­dia last year. I feel this would make a great ‘win­dow’ for my paint­ing. It’s al­ways of ben­e­fit to have plenty of paint­ings stored away for un­der­paint­ing tex­tures or sit­u­a­tions like this. I add a layer mask, some win­dow parts and some adjustment lay­ers to cool it and fit it into the im­age.
