Lake Q Twilight, Week Two
Lake Q Twilight, Week Two

I lost track of some of what I did in the beginning, but somehow, after giving it a new crop, I pretty much had a silhouette with a deep rosy color. And I layered that with a B&W image and merged those two layers. I then boosted the saturation and used the Cutout Filter.  With the Black and White pic I used the accented edges effect, layered those two.  Last, I boosted the gamma and the curves tool gave it more clarity.  Then, I overlayed another image layer over that of a photo I took a couple of years ago of some concert lights.

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.

      1. 🙂 I guess we all learn differently – I’ve never been able to figure it out. I don’t find PS user friendly at all which is what I love about Sagelight. I was able to just go in and start doing – low learning curve.

  1. Wow, so different! I kept getting drawn back to look at this image repeatedly. It’s really interesting. At first I didn’t think I was going to like it, but the more I looked, it grew on me. Good work! Eager to see where you take it next!

  2. Wow, that’s a really odd effect! Love the experimentation you did, but it’s a bit too out there for me – love the serenity of Week1. I bet you had heaps of fun though, and that’s the main thing!
