Triptych always a group of three..





Did you know the traditional triptych comes from early Christian altar paintings?
Here I have created a modern one from one photo with a help from Mr Photoshop.

See before, during and after.
I cropped/ chopped the original photo in to three, played with the mode to lab colour, adjusted curves, saved each piece, then opened up a new blank file, adjusted the canvas size, made the background black and began layering.

Great fun and the results definitely have got a slight oriental feel.
Very different from the original photo and where I wanted it to be.
Sometimes you have just got to go along with the flow!
