Picture Transformation

Creating an abstract pattern by picture transformation. Take a photograph that you like the look of. I mainly choose ones with interesting colour combinations or textures.

The result we are looking for in this transformation is to liquefy parts of the picture to create an overall abstract effect

Adobe Photoshop is used to transform the picture.
