First communion

Thought this might be a fun one to work on. This is my first time linking here so we'll see how I do.

Re: First communion

Wow... what an exceptional shot, Kelly. Welcome to RP and sharing this treasure.

Normally this forum is where photos get morphed into "paintings," but I thought keeping it as a photo has a lot of potential. I hope I've done it justice.

Re: First communion

Somebody took a great photograph! Was it you Kelly?

Masked out the little girl. Ran A dry brush filter.

Added a parchment layer below this and a pink burgundy layer under the parchment. Masked the parchment and painted with 50% opacity black watercolor brush for the edging. Added texture to this mask

Added a duplicate of the little gir and created a shadow and placed that below the masked versionof the little girl.
