Artist gets “touched-up” by his own Illustration

StreetArt-001

Three Mexican artists demonstrated their skills in Mission, Texas last February 14 on the street outside the Mission Historical Museum. Unfortunately, the spectacular chalk sketches lasted only a few days before being worn away by wind and traffic.

Church in the Clouds

San Juan Capistrano composite rendered in Photoshop CS5

This began as a photograph of the church at Mission San Juan Capistrano in San Antonio, TX. I converted the photo to a crosshatch sketch, added a mirrored image of cirrus clouds from my library of cloud photos, a blue background and some white highlights to create a church floating in a surreal sky. It is both more and less of the original image, as well as more and less of the image in my mind. I built the final illustration on 5 or 6 layers in Photoshop CS5 in about an hour or so.
