Writing with Light

Artist in Boston Common

I love watching an artist create and on this beautiful afternoon in Boston Common I did just that. As I stood and watched, her painting came to life on the canvas. I converted the image to B&W using Topaz Black & White Effects and then selectively brought back the color in the painting. As an artist you can see the scene as it is or interpret it in your own way, on your own canvas 🙂

    I am not usually drawn (pun intended) to selected color images but this one works on so many levels Edith. Nicely created.

  12. This is the most effective use of selective color. There has to be some logic or some reason to use it. Here, there is. Really well done, Edith. The kind of image that sticks in the head. 🙂

  13. Clever idea to use the selective color to highlight the artwork being created. This is a technique that, in my opinion is overused and very often misused. Here, though, The technique works very well and definitely enhances the story you are trying to tell.

  16. I’m not always a fan of selective color, but it really works nicely here. The focus is most definitely on his painting, and your exposure is spot on! 🙂

  19. Fascinating perspective – the view that the artist sees and the view the camera sees.
