I came up with the idea to do a tilt shift on one of my favorite paintings, The Dream by Henri Rousseau. The inspiration came as I was scrolling down my tumblr and saw the tilt photography the artist had done on such famous works as Van Gogh’s Starry Night. I used the app snapseed on my phone which allowed me to play with the blur, contrast, tilt and saturation. The finished project has the main concept, ‘the girl on the couch’ now pointing to the often hidden flute player. I hope the difference in what I did can be spotted from the original.
