Photo Art

Today I have been playing with some “effects” on my photos, and I am pleasantly happy with the results.
Sometimes reality needs to be ignored.

I like the hand drawn quality of the photo with this desaturated effect.

I like the varied accents of colour in this Solarization Effect.

I cloned out an extra branch in the photo below, and maybe because I was thinking it looked like Bamboo – I saw a Tiger emerge.

I just couldn’t resist the colours of this Inverted negative.

I really had fun with this – I think I will be doing more of it in the future.

Clay on a Rainy Saturday

Saturday I actually sat down and played!  I had a great time and am really happy with the results.
Sadly 1 item burnt in the oven, but the rest came out fine.
The teapot will have to get a new handle, as the cane just doesn’t suit it anymore, so there is still a little bit more to do there.
I’m thinking the teardrops will make up a necklace, and my new snail “Candy” has joined the herd.
