First week’s lesson with Jeanne Oliver for Studying Under the Masters 3. Jeanne had us create a hand-painted pattern paper torn collage inspired by Horace Pippin’s painting “The Warped Table.” I improvised a bit on the fruit and rose placement. I created my collage on a small 4 x 6 canvas panel. I then scanned the image and moved it into Photoshop CC where I added one of Horace’s quotes from the class and some other textural elements.
This is part of the verse prompt for His Kingdom Come’s Take Me Deeper group. I took the photo a few weeks go at the Botanical Gardens in Fort Bragg, CA. I changed the coloration to more muted fall tones rather than the more uniform bright spring greens. It added a bit more dimension to the photo. I used several texture overlays and a Topaz Impression filter.
