How I Created Long Gone


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 wasn't thrilled with the foreground on the right so I blended the above image on top and flipped it and masked out everything but the green grass in the right foreground (FOUR) 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.


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

This is another made up landscape. I love doing these and will probably do more.  I have a lot of barn/house photos from when I had my PA house. I need to look through them.

I took this photo at a antique/gift shop.  This was on the porch and I could kick myself that I didn’t buy the bird.  I should go back and see if it still there.

The Red House

iPad Pro - iColorama
This scene does not exist - completely made up in iColorama from 5 different photos. I was looking at Jamie Heiden's work and love it so I wanted to do a rural scene. This is very unlike her stuff but it is what it is!!!

The End Of Chaos

First image I have created in a few days - I was reading a book and when I read I do nothing else - that is why I usually only read in the summer.

A Very Private Angel

I created a painted abstract in Procreate as the base of this image.  I wanted to do a very abstract piece but then I added the angel and went from there.

So I am trying to use some apps I have that I haven't used or do not know much about - I picked Mobile Monet to use for a week or so to see how I like it. I am trying to organize my apps and I have a lot of apps. I am trying to see what they do and how they do it.
