Another pet project of mine, I needed something to hang above the couch in the living room...what better than a print of my best friend
I had seen the idea in a magazine and knew that I could tackle the project on my own. So I found a picture of my little girl.
I then took the photo into Photoshop and Desaturated it (changed it to greyscale), then I Posterized it down to 4 levels (now there are only 4 colors). I printed it off and graphed it, chose a color scheme to match my living room (white, pale green, darker green, plum) and matched it to the 4 colors of the photo print off. Purchased the 4'x5' canvas, graphed that off and proceeded to transfer the image. With left over paint from the living room (just had to purchase the plum color) I proceeded to paint
I do have plans for our male's portrait...just haven't got to the transferring and paint part yet
