The final December post for our One Four Challenge – it’s been so much fun thanks to  Robyn Gosby!

I soooo needed to work with this image in a different color! For this version, I went back to the original, first crop before I played with any sky and without any filtering of the texture.

I converted it to B&W and increased the gamma and offset, added a new layer, Locofilm 5 in B&W with some curves play and more gamma. Then,  another layer of the same pic with some hue adjustments.

I then put it on waterpaper (PS) with a low fiber content and high contrast & brightness and we’ve come to the end of this photo journey!

And thanks to Marsha for letting me know how to create this photo slideshow gallery!

The natural world is phenomenal and so much of the man-made world - our architecture, our cities - are stunning accomplishments. They exist hand in hand in both beautiful expressions and sometimes disastrous manifestations. Our entire existence with the natural and the invented is intertwined – each dependent on the other, even as my art evolves, each breathing in the wake of the other. Surface design is one aspect of the process that I love. I thoroughly enjoy the play with color, value and construct, particularly the improvisation which starts with one thing, an idea, a glimpse of a vision, perhaps something that captures my eye for a moment in time and it grows organically. I become focused on whatever piece I'm working on and follow my muse to find my way.
