tom thompson lake

Another digital painting. I took a old photo, in this case a not very good one I had taken of Tom Thompson Lake at night some years ago, I then add colour and use a "smudge" tool to brush the new and existing colour into shapes and literally "paint" a scene over the photo. I don't try to make the scene look real or replicate my photo, but I try to "paint" something that feels real and replicates the way the scene seemed at the time. Given that this is Tom Thompson Lake, for me, this is the only way it could feel at the time.
