Museum Silhouette

How long do we have to stay at the museum?

Our girls are really good about going out and doing adult things, like spending time at an art museum. There is some antsy-ness that goes on, but they’re learning how to either make things interesting or be patient while they die of boredom. Here, they were patient with Mommy as I asked them to pose in front of the window, knowing that I’d get a good silhouette. Well, somewhat patient.

The original was just dark. I blew out the highlights coming in from the window and turned it into black and white. I used a small adjustment brush on my daughter’s face so her features would stand out just a little. Here’s the original:
