I went wandering along the Yarra River a little while ago,
and took along some paper, pastels and crayons in my satchel.
I was looking for interesting subjects to Frottage.
Frottage is a bit of a fancy name for a rubbing.
This is crayon with a watercolour wash.
My photo of a cool looking tree covered in moss.
My tree then when through some Photoshop treatment.
I adjusted the levels, exposure and gamma correction.
Then I added a conte crayon filter.
The images were then merged together, but I had to then adjust the levels on the rubbing for it to make a bolder impact. From here I then used Illustrator for the final touches.
I gave the image a title and added some shapes with the ellipse tool and multiplied them.
They were then made transparent to show the image behind.
