I had a great incentive to use them as one of my favourite challenges, "Mix it Monthly" is asking us to make abstract artwork this month.
So I painted this
then went to town with photo-editing.
I used three programs - Photoshop CS2, Nero and Tuxpi.
Tuxpi is a free editing program and has some interesting features.
I like the little monsters that appeared here, slightly off centre as monsters would.
I liked the calmness of this
and the four-squaredness of this.
But is photo-editing art, Art?
In photo-editing's defence:
Each of these started with my own artwork.
I went through many options and procedures to choose the final ones here, and maybe that is a skill in itself.
Do let me know what you think.
