I have recently revisited a photoshop technique that I have experimented with in the past. Without going too much into the technicalities, these images have been produced using the Stylize / Find Edges filter, which creates an outline which can then be filled in with textures and colours.
This past autumn I visited the Erin Fall Fair north of Toronto. They have many vintage tractors on display – all in working condition. I used two images from this collection to apply this technique. There is a tractor pull at the fair too, but I missed that.
The old Dodge truck is on display in the Distillery District near downtown Toronto. It is definitely not in working condition!
When I was involved in silk screen printing over 40 years ago, I always wanted to find ways to reproduce a photograph as a silk screen print (serigraph). There were many limitations in the process, which was very time consuming and required accurate registration of each colour application.
It is now much easier to create images that imitate serigraphs with the use of filters in Photoshop.
In this series, I have used images of stones (carved or free standing) and transformed them into three serigraph prints.
