I kept resisting, finding myriad excuses to avoid it.
Resisting the moment when I took the lessons from my Photoshop Artistry course and actually created something. When I got out of my head, out of the ins-and-outs of the software – and picked up my virtual paintbrush.
It was fear, plain and simple. Fear of failure, fear of imperfection, fear of the blank canvas.
Of course, the solution is simply to begin. So I gathered together some of my favorite images from the San Antonio missions and started playing.
Applying textures to my images isn’t new. What is new are my attempts to meld multiple images together into a cohesive whole.
I am just halfway through the course – still learning, still experimenting.
The point is: I finally began.
