Ballerina Watercolor

I am always trying to reinvent myself and always off into a new direction. Photoshop is a program I almost always use daily and there are so many wonderful things that can be done with it.
This is an experiment from an online tutorial that taught me how to make a photograph look like an actual watercolor painting, with brush strokes and texture. I'd love to know what you think about it!  


  1. She has a look like she's concentrating on every movement. Very beautiful, but still athletic. I'm not normally a fan of pink, but it seems to add another touch of girliness to the work. I'm pretty sure if you hadn't said it was all done on a computer I would have thought it was a print of a watercolor. But, that's just my point of view.

  2. Good to know!! This is actually a photo of a famous russian ballerina.

  3. that is gorgeous! I love the way the colors play around her, making her almost look like she's in motion. Very nicely done!

  4. Hi Lisa,
    I love what you did with Photoshop. I am afraid to try it but when my daughter comes to visit, I will have her show me some new things! You always talks about it so she can give me a tutorial!
    Love Di ♥

  5. Wow, you have an amazing talent. Your work is etherial...I love this one especially.
