PAINTINGS AND DRAWING ODDBALLS – JANUARY 2018

Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge: January 28, 2018

I went to a birthday party a couple of weeks ago. I’ve been playing with the pictures ever since. The goal? To make portraits look like portraits, yet make it difficult to see specific facial features. Of course, if you know the people involved, you’d recognize them, but I’m guessing you don’t know them.

    It’s kinda fun applying various filters to photos to achieve different artistic effects. Nice job!

      It’s not just applying filters, because one filter works on one pictures, but not necessarily on another. I also do a lot of processing — lightening, sharpening, softening, changing the “glow,” color alteration. But I LOVE my filters and don’t know how I worked without them.

    If Monet knew the Duke – priceless, but Rembrandt’s first New England blizzard is magical.

      I had a mental image of Rembrandt sitting in my driveway paining as the wind whipped around him. And of course, there’s Monet convincing duke to pose 😀
