An Introduction to Africa = A Continent of unsurpassed Beauty and secrets


Hi Folks,

I want to introduce you to Africa. A Continent so huge that America almost pales in comparison. But how much is known about this massive Continent, the Countries that divide it, and the people who live in each Country, and who are vastly different from one another?

In the Democratic Republic of Congo, live the silverback mountain Gorillas. No animal, well, few, come close in beauty, stature and she awesomeness (if that’s even a word) to these incredible animals, who, people, are just ONE DNAmolecule different to us. So they could be our cousins!Truth.

LAYER 4 Today’s layer is #4 and consists of two images. One is the color paint layer and the other is how I have used the colored paint layer.
To start, I created a yellow/gold layer based on colors contained within the original design layer. I use the rectangle tool in Photoshop to create a layer. Then I make the layer a specific color using the color picker tool and choosing from my design. This way I keep all of the colors in my final picture compatible with each other.
After I have chosen the color I use a Snap Art filter to make the solid color more of a brushstroked color. I use short brush strokes, lots of color variations and lots of saturation and contrast. This makes a nice textured pattern that has some awesome color variations. Again they are all the same color tones as the original design.
