So, I’ve been doing a bunch of research into atmospheric perspective ‘sfumato’ I believe it’s called, so I’m strating to put my art brain into action. I took a photo of this rock up at ‘Windy Hill’ off of Skyline (A park in the SF Bay Area) and for the last couple of nights after work I’ve been tweaking reality. Removing weeds and working toward changing the scale to be much larger than it originally was. Late last night I, out of curiosity, applied a threshold in the layer mix and I got what you see on the right and this is some of the detail.

Threshold making interesting design decisions.

So, coming next, a painting of a distant landscape.
