About the Image(s)

I took this image on a zoo trip. In order to remove the cluttered background and harsh lighting, I decided to paint it. It was painted entirely in Photoshop, using various mixer brushes. The background is from my files. I also added some hints of leaves and foliage from different brush presets I own. I had actually painted this last year and put it aside; as I did not know which version I preferred. That’s where you now come in…. I still can’t decide. So there are three versions from which to choose. There is a version with about half the body showing. A second version is in landscape mode with the giraffe’s long neck leaving the frame. The third version is cropped as a vertical with very little of the body showing. Thanks in advance for your comments and suggestions. They will be greatly appreciated.

AS always your painting strokes are lovely. So you really want us to look at the composition of your work and I like the 1st one or this current above. The 2nd one is a bit distracting with part of the body not clearly defined. But there may be a fourth one too.   Posted: 07/10/2024 17:45:57
