As I drove away from the rainbow and ventured inland, I was suddenly taken aback by the trees overhead. The lane was covered with a tangled covering of branches as they searched out the path to the best light.
I almost felt as if I was looking down into a reflection on water. It almost didn’t seem real. Alas, the light was rather flat, but I thought I would try and capture the entanglement anyway:

Abstract Art by Omaste Witkowski
Today’s layer is #4 and consists of two images. One is the color paint layer and the other is how I have used the colored paint layer.
To start, I created a yellow/gold layer based on colors contained within the original design layer. I use the rectangle tool in Photoshop to create a layer. Then I make the layer a specific color using the color picker tool and choosing from my design. This way I keep all of the colors in my final picture compatible with each other.
After I have chosen the color I use a Snap Art filter to make the solid color more of a brushstroked color. I use short brush strokes, lots of color variations and lots of saturation and contrast. This makes a nice textured pattern that has some awesome color variations. Again they are all the same color tones as the original design.

Was it a muscle car exuding power or a luxury car selling that sleek curvy look?
From my perspective, the lines and curves of those great classic cars are an artistic opportunity. I try and shoot elements of the car to tell a story. With that being said, I have attached three separate shots in color and black and white. They both…
