smart photoart friday: quill design

Until photoart friday formally returns, I’m continuing the tradition by trialling some Smart Photo Editor effects.

Top L to R: Original quilled  headdress design; b & w channel mixer with blue; mesmeric transformation 001;

On a recent visit to the Design Museum, I was attracted by a faux headdress in the fashion section, comprised of porcupine quills, inserted into paper, that was torn and stained into patterns. With a black and white channel mix and an  image-reflected, textured overlay, it was transformed into an overtly art deco photoart. I felt it was too dark and so converted it from monochrome to duotone of cobalt and champagne…

…which in turn inspired my book cover illustration and  review @ Tell Tale Therapy: The Great Gatsby.
