I took the leap….
Okay, I may only be testing the waters at this stage.
I have a lot to learn.
But, so far so good!
I started by playing with these beautiful images…
from my ‘rainy day’ file –
A gorgeous tree reflected in a pool.
Playing with the light, the colour and the sharpness of the image..
Pure joy, creating this tapestry of texture and colour!
Now, here, for reference, and for fun…are the originals…
What a wonderful process – I love this!
A bit of on-line inspiration, this.
I was reading a blog post not too long ago by my wonderful on-line friend Brenda whose beautiful photography and writing is, well, inspiring.
She was writing about an artist who had inspired her. She’d noticed a particular kind of composition in a single photograph – horizontal bands of colour, light, and texture, transforming nature into the abstract. It’s a striking image, and from that inspiration, Brenda created a stunning series.
It was my turn to be inspired.
I looked at my own photographs with Brenda’s work in mind and found a few bands of my own…
That’s the beauty of the on-line artists community – there’s tremendous generosity – making it possible to stretch and grow by learning from the work and reflections of other artists.
Here’s to inspiration..and to band-ing together.
Thank you, Brenda!
Who’s inspired you? Who’s informing your growth as an artist? Band together with another artist and see what you discover!
