This is the full meal deal, with all the colours and textures. I used two photos taken from a bus window on different days, one of a yellow building and the other of a young woman checking her cell phone while waiting for a bus. The graffiti was photographed on the wall of a washroom stall at the Emily Carr University of Art & Design a few years ago.
This is a scaled back version of the same composition, giving a lighter, brighter feel to the scene. Do you have a preference? I spend a lot of time trying out different effects and it gets quite mind boggling to choose between them.
I read a quote today about digital art that resonated with me:
"While the computer has brought new possibilities and versatilities, fundamentally it is just another medium that the artist of the 21st Century can choose to use--among oils, watercolours, acrylics, the airbrush and so on. The important part of the whole equation--the artist--remains unchanged by the choice of medium."
Digital Art for the 21st Century
I find that terribly reassuring.
