I found this piece of paper on the floor at the local Dairy Queen and read about the strands holding fast until the melting point and then rapidly let go. I found it very interesting so i kept it to use in a piece of art someday - that was about 5 years ago. Well, heres my artwork homework. Still don't understand what it all mean but then mysteries are interesting subject matter, especially if you try to figure out what the art is saying. Well, it's not saying anying. Art dosn't talk!

Some might think it's not right or nice to mess around with another artists' work and then call it their own. However, second hand or re-worked art is oftendone in the form of rubber stamps, recolouring, using a different background etc. by amateur artists, which i most definitely am. I'm a Photoshopping grandma, adding to the original, subtracting from it and changing it whilst creating a new piece of artwork from it.
The first one happened sort of accidently and since i've never seen any other art using this method i'm claiming it as my very own original technique!
My first make over utilizes a painting of Angelo Bronzino (1503 - 1572)
Top is Eleonora da Toledo by Angelo Bronzino.
Bottom is my Photoshop make over
Please comment if you like it, and also if you don't. I'd really appreciate your feedback.

This is what i started with
Added 9 random existing plainish and boring colours on top of them
Erased off alot of the top colour to reveal the originals beneath then played with overall colour, lighting and texture. I like 'em!
Heres another version created with just one more click on the gradient map
That was fun and so easy; i made several more versions of the same thing in different colours but will stick with the blues cuz that's my favourite colour.
