Mountain Angel

Sometimes the ideas and inspiration for new images can be difficult to find. Some weeks I get heaps of ideas, although they are not necessarily all translatable into the digital world, while at other times it’s like trying to get blood out of a stone. One of my greatest resources for inspiration lies in old paintings, and this week’s image is just that: 2 old paintings combined into one.

I obtained an uncopyrighted photo of an old painting of an angel. The painting itself must be very dirty because there were a significant number of scuffs and dirt-marks on it. In addition, the top third of the angel’s wings weren’t there. So I put in quite a few hours cleaning up the dirtiness of the image and adding in the tops of the angel’s wings. I also changed the eyes and the lips as I thought the young girl in the original image looked rather unhappy, even a little grumpy!

Then the second biggest challenge was trying to find a suitable image for a background. Searching through page after page of paintings of scenery, I eventually found a mountain top image I thought would suit. It too was dirty and even damaged and I tried very hard to repair it digitally which took a considerable amount of time.

The final result was the following image which I have now uploaded to all the stores:

I have been having a little fun with quilt (duvet) covers, blankets, pillowcases and towels. These are available in one of the USA shops and the Australian shop. You’ll find the links directly after each of the images.
