One Four Challenge December Review 4

One last One Four Challenge (or in this case, One Seven Challenge) of a wintery weed lying in the snow done up in a variety of photo apps.

The original image reminded me of a pencil sketch.
Winter weed in the snowWaterlogue, usually my favourite ‘painting’ app, failed miserably with this image; there just wasn’t enough detail for it to work. Sketch Guru, on the other hand, translated that ‘pencil sketch’ thought really well. 
Winter weed in the snow using Sketch Guru's watercolour Winter weed in the snow using Sketch Guru's watercolour Stackables, usually my favourite for overlays, didn’t quite pull off this weed the way I wanted. The top image is the ‘Rich England’ formula, and the one below it uses the ‘Old Barn’ formula.
Weed in the snow, processed with Stackables 'Rich England' formula Weed in the snow, processed with Stackables 'Old Barn' formula Pixlromatic shone with a variety of looks, adding just enough colour and pizzazz to make these weeds fun!
Weed in Snow in Pixlromatic I can’t quite decide between this one and the one below it; both have a wonderful wintery feel to them – I might even use them for Christmas cards!Weed in Snow in Pixlromatic Weed in Snow in Pixlromatic One last look at my weed, this one taken off the computer, something I’m hoping to do more of in the future!
Wax Resist Painting, Collaged with Gold Foil and Magazine Images And a few thoughts of where I might go next…

  • Using apps with food is really tricky – I’m planning on exploring this since my Travel Blog is about travel & FOOD, and restaurants seem to specialize in dark sulphuric lighting.
  • Detailed studies of various apps such as what Waterlogue is good at and what it isn’t. Also there are some apps such as Matter and Psykopaint which I want to really explore fully.
  • Repeat of October’s challenge: What app gives the best painted look? Which app produces the best saturated image? Which one is the best for almost black and white? Which one produces the best layered look?
  • Taking it off the computer!

  3. Love this beautifully delicate image and really love seeing you painting in ‘analogue’ – something I want to do more of myself.
    All versions are great and I really like the Pixlromatic version (bottom image) – really reads like an encaustic artwork.
    Fantastic. Thanks for being a part of the One Four Eliza – looking forward to your next works 🙂
