Colorful Laughter

Enjoy painting and playing with this portrait I took of a street performer.

So much fun. So much color.

Have at it.

Janet

Re: Colorful Laughter

Nice shot Janet!

Thanks for the play!

Changed background and a fake smudge (compliments of Joeven and Palms)

Re: Colorful Laughter

Great photo, wow colors. Simplified and ran through Photosketcher in watercolor mode. I used the strongest texture and bumped the color a bit.

Re: Colorful Laughter

You said it Mining Art, "WOW colors." I agree. That's why it is so fun to paint.

Great job.

Re: Colorful Laughter

I couldn't resist the colours in this, thanks for sharing it!

A quick smudge in PS, blended in Painter, repainted the eyes in PS and added sandstone texture and paint daub filters at the end in PS.

Lots of fun!
