Paint Your Mexican Stone Panel Experiment: Day 2
This post contains only a small portion of the images. You can find more images
(more images will be added there in upcoming days)
Yesterday I shared a post in which I started an experiment with painting a photo of a carved stone from El Tajin, Mexico. I thought that it would be interesting to see the photo painted with various colors.
When my friend Ivan saw the post he immediately asked me for the original picture so he could make his own painting. I updated the post then and made the source file available for anybody to download so they could make their own version of the painting. When Ivan sent the result to me he also asked if I have more pictures like that - that he liked painting it a lot.
It turns out that I do have quite a lot of those images from my trip to Mexico, Belize and Guatemala in 2008. At that time I was just taking snapshots of steles, stones, portals and various building parts with no specific purpose in mind. I didn’t even know what to do with those pictures because I didn’t want to share them - I thought they were not interesting enough without lots of background information to be shared along with them, e.g. at least what’s on them - which I didn’t know.
Today though, the day has come to put them to use! I’ll be sharing these photos in full 100% quality in my facebook and google+ albums so you can download them and create your own creations.
