“Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans,” said John Lennon, though he wasn’t the first. This certainly happens when I’m in Photoshop. I started with creams and greens and a romantic couple walking on the beach. An experimental change of blending modes with the textures, one of which is a freebie from French Kiss, produced this vivid mahogany-like backdrop and I was sold!
I added a photograph of the Russian ballerina Tamara Platonovna Karsavina (1885–1978) from The Library of Congress and turned her into a silhouette. The result reminds me of the lustrous designs on Ancient Greek pottery, hence the title, Dancing in Greek.
Take care and keep laughing!
