Daily walk task 5 – Simple photo editing

Posted on Updated on

This is a computer-based one so feel free to leave it if you want.

Often your source image is the wrong way round to work with what you are trying to draw or is too colourful if you are working in black and white.

It’s a fairly easy thing to address and making changes can help you plan your drawing better.

In this exercise, I also look at how to make an image blurry which will help with future drawing exercises.
