My painting lesson for this week addresses Shapes. So I’m seeing shapes everyone I go. It is unusual to have your vision filtered, shape-seeking.
I really wanted to try overlaying this photo of hard black branches onto a scan of a painted background.
I have never liked the Hard Light Filter, but for this image, it did exactly what I wanted!
Two versions, one with a monochromatic section of the background, the other with the full multi-colored background. The background painting has graphite scribbles, which I feel create a delightful tangle with the branches. The water is very present in both images.
Accidental still life –
Calendar page picturing roses, sanded with sandpaper for a project
Dried leaves brought inside for a project
Gold silk ribbon I just have hanging around because I like to look at it
I wanted to manipulate this image, but maybe i like it just the way it is.
Now that I’ve taken the photo, maybe I can pick up the floor.
