This is a photo from Plitvice again, with lot’s of small waterfalls. Very cool to see and tried to make something out of it. The water actually has such a color, though i used two photos to create this shot. I’ll upload one of a still lake tomorrow, so you can see the color and clarity of the water 🙂
Hope you like this painting! Used Photomatix and Photoshop Elements to create this shot
Please continue reading to see a larger version of the final version!
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!

These are some more pictures of the ‘paint project’. All are inspired by a poster hanging in the bedroom: Oneness
