Give Way... Man with heavy umbrella crossing ahead. by gailmmeek

Give Way... Man with heavy umbrella crossing ahead.

Some more selective colouring this evening. We've had heavy showers on and off throughout the day and I thought this man with his heavy 'umbrella' were most appropriate for the weather.
Is that an umbrella or a man with a shovel shovelling dirt? What app do you use for SC? It is so good here!

@maggiemae Haha, yes, it's definitely supposed to a man shovelling dirt. It's one of the signs they put on the side of the roads to warn you that they're working on the roads ahead. I thought it look like a man struggling to open his umbrella. :)

I use Photoshop to do the selective colouring. Do you use photoshop, Maggiemae?

No, it's a bit expensive but I think picmonkey might do it I investigate it a bit more deeply!

@maggiemae Oh great - I've not really used picmonkey, so I can't say. I agree, photoshop is great, but expensive... it came pre-installed on my laptop, which was the main reason I chose the laptop that I did, otherwise I wouldn't have been able to get it either. But it's such a great program allowing you to work with layers.
