I think the original photo is geometric in itself, but I started to work on it to find something new to it. enhancing the lines, shadows, structure – Playing around with this. These are the results I achieved.
A photograph of swans flying above me was the starting point. I started to soften it… and so on.I added more birds as contrast. I find it so hard to stop when I get started. Here are six takes on flying birds. I hope you enjoy them, I had fun doing them. I think I’m going to start a fabric design venture, I think the last two would make a nice prints, do you agree?
This from a photograph I have, framed , ready to go to the exhibition. A sprocket I photographed at a junk yard. First I did the versions below, but in the end did so much less editing and liked it best, what say you?
Iron/ steel machinery was my inspiration this time. I started with iron machines details, then added figures… and played with the images. Here are what I was able to produce this time. Simplify…. I tried to take something away every time to leave it as simple as possible.
All the variations in the photo gallery can be enlarged to see my process.
