I wanted to try my clouds picture again, but chose to make it less abstract. I remembered a technique a friend used for her painting. She projected the image from a photo onto canvas to outline her sketch first, and I decided to try something similiar. Since the picture was on my camera, I just enlarged it and traced the shapes onto my paper. Then, I filled in the details and left out the parts I didn't want. I added only two colors, wanting to make them contrast the rest. After reading posts about using photoshop for digital art, I decided to experiment a little with Piknik, that is linked to my Picasa Web Albums. On the right, you can see the results. I think I captured the light a little more.
