Mixed Media Art Questions for Milliande


I've just begun with photoshop and discovered the "filter" tool. I've altered a few photos and am excited with the 'new' image. I have then colored this new image with pencils. Is anyone else doing this?

Is there a name for this process? I googled but can't find reference to this type of art.

Are these then "originals"?

Note: I am not transfering these photos onto canvas; instead I'm working directing on the Epson Presentation Matte paper, archival.

Mixed Media Art Questions answered by Milliande

As I understand, you take a photo , then alter in in photoshop with filters etc ... then print out the altered photo art onto epson matte paper .. which then becomes your " canvas" to color it in with art pencils .... did I get that right ?

If so ... that is an interesting questions as to what this process is called .. hmm not quite altered art , not quite altered photography ... so I guess it would fall into Mixed Media Art .. which can host a variety of different layers , art materials in one particular artwork ..

In your case we have
a photograph
an altered photograph
matte paper
and colored pencils ... layered in different stages

SO I would called it Mixed Media Art , how about everyone else ? any suggestions ?

As to whether it is original art or not ...

If you have taken the photograph yourself and are coloring it by hand then YES ... as each time you print the outline out then hand coloring will be different

If you color it digitally and then print it out it would be a print as it is easily printed repeatable times ...

That would be my take on it, as far as I understand your art process to be :-)

hope this helps

So happy to get feedback on this. It's so fun to play with the colors! Recently we had two eight hour road trips. I did two pieces, one each day and the time just flew by! One is a pasture scene with pink cows and a row multicolored fence posts.

I do that!

:) I alter my photos like that :) I also use many different other techniques on photo's proper 35mm ones or home printed ones or polaroids. I love the effects you get. I hate using PS and the only thing I do is change the saturation and flip it to b/w then print.
