#SWF Rainy Skies Photo-artwork

Yesterday I shared an ordinary photo of gray rainy skies and as promised today I’m sharing how I used that photograph in Pixelmator applying some cool brushes and backgrounds to create three new photo artworks but first let me ask, did you vote in my latest round of BoTB yesterday? If not, I hope you’ll hop over to cast your vote! 😉

In the first photo, I applied two different Brusheezy brushes – birds and deer.

Usually, I keep my layers visible in a working copy of my image so I can share with you what I used but I messed up and didn’t save the file. In the next image, I added a grunge background. There are many good free resources you can find on the Internet if you like this look. It makes the picture a bit moodier.

Finally, in the last image, I added another overlay of realistic water drops to the above image. I shot the original picture through a raindrop splattered car window which is barely visible in the unedited photo, but with this added background enhances that rainy day sense.

I am sharing my Rainy Day Photo Artwork with the Skywatch Friday photo family.

Thanks for joining me today, Kittens & Dawgs and I hope y’all will come back tomorrow for your weekly dose of laughs with Friday Sillies!
