Geese Sanctuary is my second painted photograph, created for a friend. I learned the technique from Stella Pagani at her Vortex Art Studio in Wakefield Quebec. In this work I used watercolours and pastel. The finished work was too large for my scanner, so I stitched two scans together using the free Microsoft Image Composite Editor (ICE). I cleaned up minor discontinuities using the open source GIMP healing tool.
