My poor girls....any picture from our computer is subject to becoming a painting. I picked this picture because I love Kristen's expression. The question now is how to finish it. I already tried collage paper and music notes and then I came across a piece damask wallpaper. So, I found some online for the purpose of this portrait study.
My photoshop skills are basic, but I managed to get it to a point where I could see if I want to do this to the portrait or not. This way I can experiment all I want and decide later.
I darkened her hair and shirt really quick with the Picnik program to see if I could get her to pop against the background. I really like it, but I think I would rather start over and do her more flat paint, poster style. What do you think?
