here are some snowy pis i took just before xmas i only had my phone, i wished id gone out more and used my proper camera but i spent before christmas ill during xmas ill again and then got a cold just in time for new years, i rarely get ill so this was not good i spent most of the holiday season and before in bed. did a lot of reading though that was good discovered again the joy of books, its just made me want to stay in bed reading for the rest of the winter a kind of hibernation.
ben was upset tonight he,s been trying to draw some cars but isn,t happy with the results he said" i will never be an artist" so i showed him this pic i took a while ago and some of picasso, dali and Magrites work, and told him hes just got to keep practicing, thats what i used to do, i used to doodle on all my books at school,im much better now than i was then but probably could be even better if i did more than i do,I tend to hone all my creativity into my photos these days, as its a more instant thing, i really should do more maybe i will now i have a bit more time.
Here is a photo that was given to me to restore in whichever way I wanted, the original picture had a very orange colour cast and was blown up large which showed up lots of grain and noise. so first I corrected the colour the best I could and then smoothed as much of the noise and grain as I possibly could, which was no easy job taking a few hours, even then it was still pretty grainy and noisy so I decided to have a go at a digital painting which would help to smooth out the final picture even more and add a more desirable background, and give it a more finished look, this picture will never be that great blown up large, but would probably look good about A5 size mounted and framed.
