TangledFX App challenge for a FB group.
First try started with TangledFX preset Bloom and played around with that. Moved that image into iColorama and did some more work. I see lots of possibilities with this app - just got to get used to what it does.

Apps - iColorama, Touch/Retouch
This is the second version of this image. I wasn’t quite happy with the first as I thought I lost sight of my vision. The first was just sort of a mess of shapes and patterns but really had no focus. There is nothing wrong with that - I painted abstract art for a very long time and most of those paintings were more about my feelings rather than things. With these last two digital images neither is correct or better than the other, they are just different. I think it is important at least for me to explore and dig deeper. That is why doing a series is a great idea or just taking your base image and making another version. Always learning!

iPad Pro Apps - SuperimposeX, Touch/Retouch, iColorama
My first take on a challenge for a new FB group QAG-IOS App Group. Photos Tricia Dewey. I wanted a rather abstract take on my first first try. I tried to use just SuperImposeX for the image but ended up doing a bit of retouch and added my name in iColorama. The two photos below are used in the challenge and the main app is SuperImposeX.

So this is the photo I started off with (ONE). I went into iColorama and created a blank image 5:4 3160X2528. I blended the original image above onto the blank white image (Effects Blend). I decided to flip it and drop it down lower for the image I was going to make. I then needed some trees on the right to complete my image to the right edge I used TWO below for this.
I blended the image above to add the extra trees on the right. I masked out all of it but the trees and grasses in the foreground. This is the image below (THREE). Since I lowered the image the top was still white from the blank canvas, so I went into Paint and picked a nice big soft brush and chose a neutral grey color and painted in the sky. See below.
I was happy with this so far (I am saving versions of this as I go) and I am still in iColorama. I then took the last version (FOUR) above into Repix one of my favorite apps. I did some work on the sky with charcoal, spray, drips, etc. I softened other areas around the image (FIVE) below.
I then brought this image back into iColorama and lowered it a bit more. I wanted a larger sky and I wanted the house below the middle line of the image. I blended the texture below on top (SIX) - I think Multiple blend mode opacity about 60% or so. I then added the birds and an extra tree on the right hand side. Then I ran that image thru Style Auto Preset 1 opacity about 40%. This gave me the painterly look I like. This is image (SEVEN) below.
(SEVEN)I am still in iColorama so I save the image and go over into Touch/Retouch and do a little clean up. Save the image and come back into iColorama with this new image. I do some adjustments under Exposure to exposure and brightness and save. I decide to alter the color a bit so I then go into Tone Enhance and use Preset 9 and adjusted the opacity to about 45%. I then went into Effects Text and added my name. Final image below (EIGHT).
This was a pretty simple edit I created the landscape with the feeling and lighting that I wanted. I mostly blended images (Effects Blend) and masked out areas
