A Man and His Dog

"A Man and His Dog"  won third prize at my local Island Art Association's Nouveau Art Show entitled "Best Friends."  I'm so very excited!

Congratulations, Diane. Tell us a little about how you created it.

Judy, I generally take my photo image and manipulate it a bit in Photoshop Elements. I have an old version. I select grayscale, posterize and/or artistic cutout, selecting 4 - 6 values. Then I print out a large image, trace it, then start sewing - light to dark values. Check Ellen Lindner's site and her double reverse applique technique. I will use other methods as well. Hope I enlightened you a little. Thanks for looking at the blog.
