Just moving this over to this gallery. When I posted before I hadn't realised there was a dedicated gallery for the course. I extracted the photo of my dd Emma, and placed it into a stock photo I found for the purpose. I used the painting with colour technique to add the yellows and light greens to the background photo, and some bokeh as well. I wanted the background to have light and shade. Thought Emma's pose (for a magazine, not my work) suited the idea of looking ahead to follow her dreams. Added some of Katie's brushwork and one of her butterflies I recoloured slightly (to match Em's dress) and added light to it as well. Used lots of layers and layer masks and textures.
