Lydia

Decided to experiment with mixing several different media. Took a photo of my daughter Lydia, created a small pencil drawing to keep the lines fairly coarse. Scanned the pencil drawing in, ran it through a couple of filters in Photoshop (underpainting and poster edges), scanned in some watercolor splashes, and went to town with layering and masking. I really like the effect. Need to try it with other images. Would love some comments.

This is fresh, beautiful and remarkable. I love it that this has kicked you into depicting your family...and this is great work. Just keep doing. The thinking will catch up.
