April 2022 Challenge #1 - Artist Inspiration

First I made a geometrical mosaic of my photo.
I opened the photo and made a copy and added a gaussian blur on that layer.
I made a copy of the blurred layer and added a filter.
Filter > Pixelate > Crystallize. A pop up menu will appear - move the slider to the left or right for smaller or bigger shapes …
Then I made a copy of the layer with the shapes and I used another filter. Choose Filter > Stylize > Find Edges. The layer will turn white and look as if it has cracks in it. Don’t panic - this is normal and correct.
I changed the blending mode to multiply … and made several copies with different blending modes …
Step 2 - I made a sketch of my photo (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E5viVvYmttY)
I copied the different layers and placed them on top of the other layers – Again I played with blending modes …
WOW, Marianne, this is just beautiful! I loved reading your process which I am going to try sometime, too! Beautiful work! Congrats on your well-deserved Standing O, too!
Holy COW! This is amazing! Just AMAZING! I can’t stop looking at it! I’m so glad you documented your steps! Congrats on all the recognition— so well deserved!
What an amazing take on the challenge! Thank you so much for sharing your process. Congrats on both your Standing O and your GSO!
Beautiful! You really captured the feel of a Afremov with the bright colors and the light bright light that is reflected on the wet pavement.
