Next week's prompt will be for an Abstract Photo.
This image is both a Digital Art creation and an Abstract Photo ---or rather several photos combined.
Find Photoshop tips at the bottom of this post.
|All of these were taken in June at|
Cranberry Township Community Park in PA.
I used this large Lily twice, once in the lower right,
then I flipped it horizontally and use it in the upper
right, although it is difficult to see there.
|These lilies were growing in three huge planters.|
When I took theses photos, there were only yellow lilies
and also many buds that hadn't bloomed yet.
|Several days after taking photos of yellow lilies,|
there were also orange and deep red ones blooming
along with the yellow ones. But I saved those
photos for another project.
For anyone who thinks they aren't good at creating abstracts, I have created 3 easy lessons on creating successful abstract designs in any media. If you are interested, you can find "Lesson 1: Color" by clicking HERE. Lesson 1 has a link to "Lesson 2: UNITY" which has a link to "Lesson 3: ADDING VARIETY."
I am a retired art teacher who spent more than thirty years teaching art in public schools ---from kindergarden to community colleges, but mostly in Junior High or Middle Schools. I also spent two years teaching English as a foreign language in Brazil.
Do you find yourself having to constantly move to the top of the page to choose a smaller or larger brush size?
As long as you want to use the same brush shape and hardness, it's much easier to just hit the open bracket key ([) to the right of the P to make the brush slightly smaller each time you hit the key. Move one key to the right for the close bracket key (]) to gradually make your brush larger.
