Photo Painting

I have a new hobby - painting - and it isn't messy! I'm learning via online tutorials how to do it in photoshop. Here's my first attempt.

First, here is a picture of my friend's little girl Kate. Isn't she sweet?

Then she asked if I could put Kate on a yellow brick road. Turning the sidewalk into a yellow brick road was very hard and didn't look very good, so instead I super imposed her into a picture I found.

And then I painted it.

What do you think? I like painting because it doesn't have to be exact! And since I'm not a perfectionist, I think it's perfect for me :) I think you can click on them to see the images larger.

The emerald city looks a little like it's melting, but I like the landscape better, especially the cliffs.

Very interesting. You will have to explain to me how this works. Is it like real painting?
