For the first week of the One Four Challenge I tried to make a portrait with a water effect. I got a tip from Reinhold Staden, to blend a bit the face into the front. Thank you again, Reinhold, the tip was really good. I already tried it out but I’m not satisfied with my work. I feel that I have to take a short break with this water thing. I think I’ll go back to this theme at the next review month. For this week I decided to use a tree for my portrait. I also tried to blend the face into the tree, and I was more successful than I was with the water. :) I increased the opacity of the eyes less than the opacity of the other parts of the head because I wanted the eyes to stay a bit sharper.
I used this tree for the picture:
As you can see I also made some colour edits and added to my finally picture a sepia filter.
