Emergence from Lockdown

Here is my second image manipulation using the program Affinity. Very early days, and a lot of new skills to learn. Enjoyment is the key, and this certainly punches above its weight on that score.


My starting point was to photograph three life study sketches and two oil pastel studies I’d made at college. I removed the backgrounds where necessary using Photoshop Elements before ‘Placing’ them onto a blank canvas in Affinity.
I played with various adjustments in the different layers gradually building into my final image. There are so many variants that I now need to start recording what I do and what effects I achieve.

If you are inspired by my artwork please like, share, and comment.
Thank you for reading.

Stay well. Stay safe. Stay apart.
