Painting - Digital Reflection Painting
Dancing flowers. Dancing with the sunlight.
Cavorting happily with the spirits of the garden. These fantastic floral dances are magic in their interpretive state. The sun is bright and the dance is festive and fantastical.
This picture started as a photograph of sunflowers and I took it and modified it a bit.
I painted and reflected the original image into a whole new image. I am retaining as much of the original textures as possible. I am using only the colors that originated in the picture when it was a photograph. I am using these colors as a starting point for the picture. Then I choose which textures to use to complement the colors. Then I start painting and when I have painted to my hearts content I create a new layer, reverse it and overlay it onto the original image. I call this a Reflection.
I am really enjoying using the photographs I have taken over the years as starting points for new individual artworks. I lover the tools that are available to help us create ever new and changing art works. A Wacom tablet and Photoshop software have opened up a whole new world of creative options for me.
