Mobile Art Monday No. 3

Welcome to Mobile Art Monday! Congrats to the winners of the Stackables codes last week. I'm still having trouble getting in touch with Jeanne. If you are reading today, contact me, email is on my profile page.
Today I played in Snapseed, ReTouch, Superimpose, Brushstroke, and iColorama. This is my finished piece.

Here is where I started. I added a little Snapseed drama but masked it out of the clouds using Superimpose.
I also filled in a blown out spot in the sky using ReTouch.

Into Brushstroke, setting E2. I could have stopped right here because this was so interesting but I kept playing.

In Superimpose, (1)the original was my background layer, the Brushstroke image was the foreground set to Exclusion 44%. Then merged down.
(2)I re-imported the Brushstroke image and set it to Saturation 33%, merged down.
(3)I re-imported the Brushstroke image once more and set the blend mode to color 35%, merged and exported. 

(I did lighten it up a bit and increase the contrast in Snapseed.)
Next, a play with iColorama.
Style>Stamp>1st pattern, second row, multiply, opacity to 25%.

Still not totally happy, I took it back into Snapseed for more adjustments: brightness, contrast and saturation.

At this point I'm not doing a linkup but feel free to post a link to your mobile art in the comments.
Thanks for visiting on Mobile Art Mondays!


  1. That sky has a bit of a Van Gogh-esque look in your final image. I'm always amazed at what you do with these apps!

  2. I love to see your work process, these posts are so inspiring, Roxi!
    Stackables has became one of my Fab apps since your tutorial. Before seeing it I didn't use those many possibilities the app has at all ~ I am though still in doubt if it is possible to adjust the opacity of the texture in other but the painterly layers?
    My next app, after learning Stackables in and out, will be Superimpose.

  3. I thought the same thing... Van Gogh. Thanks for the tutorials. One of these days I need to get started using those apps I purchased.

  4. Good to see the various steps - really helpful!

  5. Great creation. Almost looks like a petroleum film on the top of the photo. Very cool.


I read and appreciate all your comments. Have a blessed day!
