Artist at Work
Contest Directions: This Saturday we continue our freaking experiment with provided source images. Street art is a relatively new thing spanning a bit over a hundred years. Centuries ago art was an expensive craftsmanship - the paints were prepared by artists, canvas or wood coating took days of delicate work, paper for drawing was so expensive it was often reused many times with previous sketches erased. These days, when the art materials are cheap, anyone can be a street artist, even this girl drawing with chalks on asphalt.
Photoshop this photo of an artist at work any way you wish. Some examples are - show what masterpieces this artist may create, place her into some new environment, etc. (Image credit: Tricia G)

        • Maybe you started your work with a tiny pic, so making it bigger will blur it.
        • Hidden. A good tip is to always set your search requirements to Wallpaper or the largest files the search engine you use will provide. Always above 1200 KB if possible. I like the 2400 KB range.
        • The reason it's blurry is because you submitted a very small image - see here. The site automatically resizes it to fit the site format. In your case it enlarged the pic resulting in a loss of quality. We allow for 500KB size for uploads, which allow for submissions to be large enough without the loss of quality. What program do you use that has to make the image so small to fit the 500KB limit?
