Sketch Corvette

Once again, using the combination of Affinity Photo and Corel Painter to creative something different and creative with one of my photos. This time I created two different art works in Corel Painter and then used Affinity Photo to merge the two art works and then paint in the sign from the original photo.

Photo Art: Country Graveyard

Taking a photo I shot a few years of an little graveyard in the country and using Corel Painter to create the art which I did by hand (no auto-painting). Then I used Affinity Photo to merge the art with the original photo to come up with the final art.

Before and After: Coxey Building Ruins at Ariel-Foundation Park

When visiting Ariel-Foundation Park in Mount Vernon, Ohio, there can be found are the ruins of the old industries that stood on the site. One of those is the Coxey Building Ruins which is open to the outdoors and is a perfect place for taking pictures like senior portraits. The ruins are also great for some good old vintage photo editing as I show with this shot edited in ON1 Photo Raw.
