Made this drawing and decided to share it here. Something different from all the photographs, yet perhaps even more personal. No particular meaning for me, but it was a good therapy making it.
Would like to thank Laura Macky for providing me with the idea for the Twirls on her website http://www.lauramacky.com

And then to think that i started with the photo underneath at the beginning.. i really love to play with photo’s in this way. For me , i work through intuition, using Photoshop and seeing the possibilities of a given photo. To describe the process a bit, i thought that adding a little contrast to the photo would make the double rainbow more visible. But it turned out quite hard to get something good out of this picture. So when i tried a few things, the rainbows got more colorful (and more like a painting). That’s when i saw the possibility of using the photo as a template which i then copied using MS paint (love that program lol). Halfway through 🙂 After that, i copied the half, mirrored it and gave it a little bit extra (saturation, brightness, clarity and the likes). This all can be seen in the final result!
The original photo
Halfway through, having used Photoshop and MS Paint
The final result
Using Photoshop Elements i made the photograph into a drawing.. ever since i saw the painting in my parents house, i know i one day want to make a painting of cranes too. They’ve got a beautiful painting with two cranes and an full moon.. i tried to recreate that.. see whether you like the result (1 without full moon & 2 with full moon)
These are some more pictures of the ‘paint project’. All are inspired by a poster hanging in the bedroom: Oneness
