A couple of weeks ago I posted this picture on Facebook. It’s one of my favourite trees catching the warm sunshine: full of twisty arching shapes. At the time my good friend Harry Owen said he could see an artwork coming on …. he was right.
I’ve managed to find some time to work with it and I’m pretty happy with these two images. They’re full of mirroring and overlay and to me they’re fantasy works. This first one overlays an image of the forest floor to give a warm rich texture.
The second one rotates the trees and the cross processing of the overlaid images gives some amazing blue and red tints. There’s a completely different feel to it.
This is still a work in progress and hopefully I’ll be putting up more pictures as my ideas develop.
