Chuggin’ along on my visual assignments, here is my second one: the Color Splash. I was a little uncertain as to how I was going to do this until a classmate pointed out that it could be done in Piknik during class – thanks to j-rabbit.info for the tutorial! It was really really easy to do in Piknik, thank goodness. Just convert it to black and white, then use the paint brush mode to repaint the selected area.
I wanted to make sure I had a photo that wasn’t too busy, but had a nice big swatch of color. I settled on this nice candid shot I got of my boyfriend Mike when we took the canoe out on Lake Pend Oreille last summer in Sandpoint, Idaho. My family has a lake house there and we go there every year, it is one of my favorite places in the world.
