texture background

textured background I created using ink and oil paint on a cotton cloth,then scanned into photoshop

I merged the high contrast black and white photo with the textured background then using a photoshop brush added color to the bicycles.
I shot about 100 digital photos during this trip to New York City then when I returned to my studio I selected about 20 of them and created digital paintings based on this photos. I then selected 7 to print on canvas and paint over.
