Photo manipulation for quilting

My photos are taken with the view of using the colors, inspiration, texture or composition for textile art.

Take this photo for instance.

The woman's stance speaks to me in a way that words don't.

When I take a photo like this. I know exactly what I'm going to do with it but first I need to prepare the photo to make it easier to impliment the image.

I changed the photo into a line drawing.

Pencil 3
Now I put it into color.

Pencil 3
enlarged it looks like this.

Now this is a drawing program, but I use it for my thread painting designs and also my Woven watercolors images.

There are a lot of ways I can use this technique.

Take a look at this web page, it will give you an idea of what can be achieved.
