Sometimes you’re not able to come close enough to the motive of your desire – or there’s an ugly fence in the foreground, like in the following image. (Okay, I could have tried to climb over the fence, but I wasn’t sure, if there were any wild animals out there who haven’t had their breakfast yet).



In this case I recommend to mix the original shot with painted parts. In this image with the title “Cirque” I just opened Procreate App – BTW: my favourite app for painting and drawing – inserted the image and painted with a thick paint brush over the fence in the foreground. I chose different modes of opacity for this to get a spatial effect. I repeated this with a blue brush in the upper parts, because I didn’t really like the white stripes in the heaven on the original image.


After this, I gave the very special atmosphere to the image with the Distressed FX app.


The whole editing took me just 10 minutes’.

Joanne Carter, creator of the world’s most popular mobile photography and art website—— TheAppWhisperer platform has been a pivotal cyberspace for mobile artists of all abilities to learn about, to explore, to celebrate and to share mobile artworks. Joanne’s compassion, inclusivity, and humility are hallmarks in all that she does, and is particularly evident in the platform she has built. In her words, “We all have the potential to remove ourselves from the centre of any circle and to expand a sphere of compassion outward; to include everyone interested in mobile art, ensuring every artist is within reach”, she has said. Promotion of mobile artists and the art form as a primary medium in today’s art world, has become her life’s focus. She has presented lectures bolstering mobile artists and their art from as far away as the Museum of Art in Seoul, South Korea to closer to her home in the UK at Focus on Imaging. Her experience as a jurist for mobile art competitions includes: Portugal, Canada, US, S Korea, UK and Italy. And her travels pioneering the breadth of mobile art includes key events in: Frankfurt, Naples, Amalfi Coast, Paris, Brazil, London. Pioneering the world’s first mobile art online gallery - has extended her reach even further, shipping from London, UK to clients in the US, Europe and The Far East to a global group of collectors looking for exclusive art to hang in their homes and offices. The online gallery specialises in prints for discerning collectors of unique, previously unseen signed limited edition art. Her journey towards becoming The App Whisperer, includes (but is not limited to) working for a paparazzi photo agency for several years and as a deputy editor for a photo print magazine. Her own freelance photographic journalistic work is also widely acclaimed. She has been published extensively both within the UK and the US in national and international titles. These include The Times, The Sunday Times, The Guardian, Popular Photography & Imaging, dpreview, NikonPro, Which? and more recently with the BBC as a Contributor, Columnist at Vogue Italia and Contributing Editor at LensCulture. Her professional photography has also been widely exhibited throughout Europe, including Italy, Portugal and the UK. She is currently writing several books, all related to mobile art and is always open to requests for new commissions for either writing or photography projects or a combination of both.

    Thanks so much, Ed. I’ve not yet adventured(read: advanced) to Procreate and your tip today inspires me to inch closer. This is a beautiful edit and great tip.

    Option B
    Use retouch to remove the white wall. The c,owning tool.
    Many ways to achieve the same result.
    Thanks for the tip Em.

    Carlos, I agree, there are many ways to achieve the same result. As I love also painting I often use painting tools – but retouching tools also work to hide white fences 🙂 Thank you for your comment! And thanks also to Tillie! I appreaciate all your comments! Kachouro
