This was an experiment.
I painted this in Corel Painter and then used it as a base for ‘Altered Art’ by adding textures and photographs to make a new altered image.
I wanted to try out the different effects of different textures on the image and see what variations I could achieve using this technique. I overlayed the image with textures and added photos but barely changed the original, in some cases not at all.
The idea for the orginal was to make it suitable for manipulation as I wanted to integrate the techniques used in photo manipulation in my digital paintings to create a new style. I’ve always been using the patterns and papers in Corel Painter, but this is going a step further by integrating textures and photographs.

Please let me know which variation (or the original) you like best.
