Under the Hood
The original photograph was taken at the 2017 Kite Festival at Corralejo. It was our first outing with the Corralejo Camera Club. If you’ve never been to the festival, then you really should go! It’s amazing to see so many kites flying over the beach! The day we went there was still a bit of a calima, making the mountains hazy, but the sky was still a beautiful clear blue. Great day out! I started off by removing the strings of the kite and other kites in the background of the original photograph. Then it was just a case of building up the background with many different layers, elements. textures and masking. I created an abstract effect, and then overlayed that with a sketched version to bring out the edges.
