Mob Paint Monday No. 44

“We are no longer in an age of needing to be approved and edited by larger companies before we are allowed to share our creations. This is the era of Do-It-Yourself. Research, investigate and try. You owe it to yourself, to your art and to the Creator to find a way to share that which you are and that which can help, aid, inspire and encourage others. Go for it and prepare to win, because you get what you prepare for.” ― Lala Mae ButterflyFreedom's Daughter: Poems & Art

Showcasing samples of the beautiful images shared in the Mob Paint Flickr Group is one of my favorite activities here at Art of Mob. Each showcase provides a chance to view work being done by various artists around the world.


In order to help this be not only a visual delight but a learning experience, I have asked the artists to provide a list of the apps used. Not all were received in time for posting. If you are a member of the Mob Paint Flickr Group and would like your work considered for the monthly showcase, I ask that you include the apps used when posting to the group. Thanks in advance for sharing your process.

Camera+, Brushstroke, Superimpose, Laminar Pro, Modern Grunge

Story by Michael:  Yet another summe©r bloom.  I'm constantly aware of the transformations with nature taking place around me as seasons come and go. I constantly observe the subtle changes of the landscape, ultimately striving to render the detailed beauty within the subjects and the story it inevitably leaves behind. The textured apps are perfect for providing the poetry for the subjects.

Mostly I shoot with Camera+ it's easy to navigate and provides great control over an image.

My workflow always begins with adjusting exposure if necessary and making any other adjustments with Laminar Pro before I begin adding texture.  BrushStroke is one of my favorite Apps, bridging the gap between a painting and the photograph. Once I'm satisfied with the texture I'll bounce back and forth within Superimpose, often times quite a lot adjusting color and texture. A little added texture is applied in Modern Grunge, and layered for the final image.

Eraddatz Photo:  Snapseed continues to be my go to app. Using a selfie and an abstract together utilizing Montage Pro I then returned to Snapseed to blur to softness and vintage, retro settings for color and texture.
