This is the second in a series of obscured portraits. I am doing these as a result of a really wonderful class I’ve been taking from Tricia Dewey. You can get information on the class here. She also has many other great classes that you can check out.
I did this piece on my iPad Pro. The apps I will discuss can also all be used on an iPhone.
I applied several textures. Some were textures I had taken at the ocean last Christmas.
I started out with an app I’ve had around for a long time and not used much. I think I had really under rated it. It’s called Repix. I really like the brushes down towards the end. Especially charcoal, chalk, Van Gogh and drips.
I took the piece into Snapseed and applied one of the new looks they have. I think I used Accentuate to bring out the colors in the piece.
Then I took it into iColorama and used the Paint brushes. I also applied Style/Coherence. iColorama is the app that just keeps on giving. Just when I think I might have it somewhat figured out, I find out more.
I enjoyed making this obscured piece. I hope you enjoy it.
