Into The Mystic

All textures, brushes - Awake and my collection

I was at a party Friday night and the band played Van Morrison's Into The Mystic - one of my favorite singers and favorite song.  I knew I wanted to make a Mystic image and here it is.  Different from what I am doing lately but just what I envisioned.

Katie 10

Created with all AWAKE course content

Model - Katie Lynn photographed by Sebastian Michaels

I am trying to get a more "painterly" look to my images using textures, brushes and scribble with the pencil tool.  Rather than using images to create a background (my usual way) I am approaching the digital image like an actual canvas and making the background.  I also am a painter so this is a natural way for me to work - I am not quite there yet with what I envision but getting close.
