Paint Your Mexican Panel Experiment: Day 1
Panel showing ballplayer being beheaded — El Tajin, Mexico
Work in progress coloring, step 1. The original photo is just a stone carved texture, no colors. The colors were added to me later to make the theme stand out more. I think it makes the photo more interesting. Do you agree? Would you like to see the painting finished? If yes, do you have any comments, suggestions, ideas? Let me know! :)
Update: If you want to try your own coloring you can! Here’s the original tiff file with layers and here’s the clean jpeg for the experiment file with 100% quality and no colors. If you make any creations using this photo I’ll post here on this blog it so definitely let me know! Please link back to this article.
Update September 27: The experiment continues! Please read the story update in this post which includes links to my facebook and google+ albums with much more images you can paint! They are always uploaded with 100% quality and resolution.
