Hey everyone.

I made a tutorial of this image to the latest issue 106, of Advanced Photoshop magazine. This is a combination of two of my photos.

Tomorrow is #MacroFeatherFriday, curated by +E.E. Giorgi and +Robin Griggs Wood … We just love to see what you see! (Find the "how to" below!)

How to play #MacroFeatherFriday ––
We want to encourage you to get up close and personal with feathers and try more of these shots, experimenting with the capabilities of your camera or trying out new lenses and new ideas for composition. Not that we don't like full bird shots, but there are so many bird themes available already, we want you to get as close as you can to those feathers! They can still be attached to the bird … ;o) … but move in and see just how much detail you can get from the feather/s––their lines, shapes, patterns and colors. It's a fun challenge, and we'll be on the sidelines cheering you on! 

You can shoot in situ or create your own lighting setup at home. Most of all, just play, use your imagination and try every crazy idea you come up with! 

I like to create different backgrounds by merely scooting a colorful postcard around behind the feather. Do peruse the #MacroFeatherFriday posts from the past, because several of the photographers and people responding in the comments share their ideas, too.
Good resources for feathers can be craft stores, dusters or just finds in wandering around your neighborhood. Maybe there is a pillow in the house you can kill for your art. … ;oD 

We really are thrilled when folks post a feather shot. From what I've seen so far, the possibilities for composition and creativity are endless. I hope to see one from you tomorrow!

Thought I'd try out the Sennelier watercolor block I discovered the other day buried in my studio.  Watercolor is a medium I'm not super familiar with.  I did maybe 10-12 large watercolor still lifes back in the late 80's, but otherwise, I have mostly avoided it -- except for small watercolor pencil drawings (paintings?) over the last few years -- until just a few weeks ago.

This time, I soaked the paper pretty thoroughly, taped it down and started to paint.  Hours later, the paper was still mostly wet, and the colors were still bleeding(!).  So, this is more messy than I'm completely comfortable with, but there it is, fwiw.  I added a bit of gouache to tame things a bit, and had already made quite a mess with drops of alcohol that got out of control.  It's a hard-sized paper, too, and I don't think I like that "feature."

Good thing, too, because to buy this watercolor block today would cost $75.00 for 20 sheets.  I guaran-damn-tee you I wouldn't have paid more than $20-30 at the most.  I think.

Emerald Lakes Macun

The 20 lakes of Macun are protected as a National Park of Switzerland. There are times when walking through this wonderful landscape is not permitted, e.g. when the summer season ends. It was a great opportunity to visit this place in summer - and get fresh snow as well. In general, few snow on alpine meadows generates visual clutter. Here, the clutter is very even, so it adds a certain structure to the landscape. 

Some of my best friends here on G+ know this image already from my early posting days, but this one features a slightly different processing and framing.

Hope you like it!

What's It Worth vs. What You'd Actually Pay

24" x 48", acrylic latex enamel on canvas. Would need to be stretched. Domestic shipping would likely run around $25, rolled and boxed.

What would you say it should be priced - and what would you offer if there was no price tag?

And if you're going to be a snarky douche bag, fuck off. My sense of humor is on vacation.

I went to Bradford today and took a few street shots, using the K-1000.  Apart from the time it took to focus manually, I really liked using a film camera.  Perhaps because I knew I'd not be able to show any pictures on request :-)

One other downside..... when you take your film to Bradford Camera Exchange to be developed (as I had to do, due to not having C-41 liquids at home), you have to walk past their gorgeous display of vintage cameras and lenses - craving for every single item :-)

This is one of the paintings I've been working on today, the re-work of Sonnet 23.

Here is a relevant quote from Wassily Kandinsky's book we are (kind of) discussing in the Artlandea community (I re-read it yesterday, and have been thinking about it since then, even overnight):

"Suppose a rhomboidal composition, made up of a number of human figures. The artist asks himself: Are these human figures an absolute necessity to the composition, or should they be replaced by other forms, and that without affecting the fundamental harmony of the whole? If the answer is "Yes," we have a case in which the material appeal directly weakens the abstract appeal. The human form must either be replaced by another object which, whether by similarity or contrast, will strengthen the abstract appeal, or must remain a purely non-material symbol."

Kandinsky, Wassily (2011-03-24). Concerning the Spiritual in Art (Kindle Locations 611-614).  . Kindle Edition.

I've been thinking: the painter can ask themselves, for sure, but can they really answer, at least right there within the process? The painter, however experienced, inevitably finds themselves in a position different from the outside viewer, almost within the painting (or, as Kandinsky's would put it, within its spiritual content). The painter may (and often does) see things others wouldn't see. In a sense, the painter would "see" those hypothetical figures even if only an abstraction remains on the actual picture plane. So how can the painter decide whether the figures are an absolute necessity or not?

Maybe that's why I fell into this strange process in which more and more works get revisited after several months, and their representational part simplified and abstracted away (even though almost never completely). Maybe, at least for now, I need this distance to make my decision.

 "Another Way To Die"

The indulgence of our lives has cast a shadow on our world.
Our devotion to our appetites betrayed us all.
An apocalyptic plight.
More destruction will unfold.
Mother Earth will show her darker side and take her toll.

It's just another way to die.

There can be no other reason why.
You know we should have seen it coming.
Consequences we cannot deny will be revealed in time.
Glaciers melt as we pollute the sky.
A sign of devastation coming.
We don’t need another way to die.
Can we repent in time?

The Time bomb is ticking and no one is listening.
Our future is fading.
Is there any hope we’ll survive?

Still, we ravage the world that we love.
And the millions cry out to be saved.
Our endless maniacal appetite.
Left us with another way to die.
It's just another way to die.
Can we repent in time?

Greed and hunger led to our demise.
A path I can’t believe we followed.
Black agenda’s rooted in a lie.
Will we repent in time?
Species fall before our very eyes.
A world that they cannot survive in left them with another way to die.
Are we dead inside?

Can we repent in time?
It's just another way to die.
Can we repent in time?

Good morning, and fair time of day!

As the winter rolls to its end, here is, still, a memory of the heat of winter festivities against the cold light of December... One of my personal favorites.

At first I wasn't going to add a BTW for the candle dancers since it was actually quite easy, but there are a few tips if you'd like to try the same thing yourselves.  This candle is a crop from the shot SOOC (straight out of the camera)  In the final shot I had taken out the door hinge using the stamp tool and adjusted lighting a bit, with contrast and tone.  My source of lighting was the sunlight streaming in through my window.  

To shape the flames  used the smudge tool at 53%  and a fairly small brush size.This is an entirely new dancer.  The first step was to pull the colors from the middle of the flame up.  Usually I pull the color out from the center.  Very little pushing it.  If I make a mistake I back up in the history instead.  Still using the small brush I used several strokes to bring out the head, hair and the horizontal arm.  With the horizontal arm I needed to make sure that the brush was small tight and use many short strokes, otherwise I would have pulled along the shapes in the door's molding along with the frame.  
The next step is where I made many short pushes with the smudge tool.  My dancer had too fat of a butt.  As I pushed the torso in to look more like a dancer's body I noticed that the roundness near the wick worked well as a knee.  From there I pulled down the lower leg, again being mindful of not moving the door's texture.  The raised leg is a bit darker to imply going back.   I have a pressure sensitive tablet so I didn't change the settings in PS, just used a light touch to pull the color out of the other leg.  That was handy since it didn't move the lines of the lower leg very much at all.  And even the small bit it did, heck, it's flame...lines flicker.

The idea of fire elementals comes from playing Video games.  I've played WoW and Rift and some mage or shaman has the elements tagging along in humanoid form.  And with the natural light aspect of the challenge, I wanted this image to be subtle and fun.

So, I can thin house paint (enamel-acrylic-latex-whatever-name-they-give-it) with water, or just a wet brush, and it sticks. I can also scrape it away after dry, though it takes some force. 

This is the part that is most unfinished.

WIP Painting

So here is the new oil painting I am working on. It  is the first painting I am doing in my new home in Guadalajara, I have only been here a couple of days and it has been pretty hectic getting used to the new place and city, but fortunately I have had time to paint!
I'm also busy with another big project but it is still in the early stages so I won't share anything until I have worked a little more on it.
Needless to say, I will be very busy these next few months.
 I will probably post another progress pic tomorrow, hope you all enjoy!

Photography is still happening here, even though it hasn't looked like it lately. I just finished uploading a batch of new images to my agent. That is the plan for this year afterall......the majority of my work is going directly to agents.

I was reminded today that I still have an arts career that needs my attention. Despite how poorly I feel my painting is going right now, I am earning my living as an artist. Two pay cheques this week, and a humbling letter from a grade 8 student who is doing a school report on me has made my week slightly less frustrating!

Snowflake-a-Day #97

This is a favourite snowflake for a few reasons: the symmetry, the center, and varying silver tones created by crystal thickness. Be sure to view large or you're really not seeing it. :) and help out the snowflake book project, now 25% funded in less than a week! http://igg.me/at/skycrystals/

High res: http://donkom.ca/gplus/DKP_0349.jpg . When it comes to "composition" of my snowflakes, I typically crop square and throw the branches on angles... but this one was screaming to be placed perfectly horizontally and I think it works well. You can clearly see the angle of the light from my ring flash coming in primarily from the left side, and on just the right angle to show the changing elevation in the center of the crystal.

Based on the thick flower-like center and the blocky tips on the branches, I'd say that this snowflake grew rather slowly. I believe there would be some kind of correlation to the "rings" you see near the center and the rate of growth, similar to the rings you would find in the trunk of a tree. That's just a guess, and I'll have to ask the experts.

The book funding project is coming along very nicely, and there are still some early-bird books available for a $30 contribution! http://igg.me/at/skycrystals/x/1642596 The indiegogo campaign has been live for less than a week and we're already at 25% of the fund goal, so if you kind folks on Google+ keep contributing, the goal will certainly be reached. A long way to go still, so everyone's support is needed! and you get a great book as your reward. :) Thanks everyone!

For those curious, a few technical details... shot at roughly 5.3:1 magnification with no cropping (except to make it square) using 34 frames focus-stacked handheld. The snowflake measures just under 3.9mm across.

I have always liked Scientific illustration, particularly from the era before computer graphics. In my opinion the golden age of illustration was the early 60's during the space race, when many books were published with "artists impressions" of what future technology might look like. The same style of illustration is found in old science text books.

Just recently my Dad gave me an almost complete set of magazines titled "Understanding Science" with the bye-line  "A new colour magazine which becomes an encyclopaedia". He subscribed to it in the early sixties (it was published in 1962 in Great Britain.) It is full of the kind of illustration I'm talking about so I have a great resource to look through and enjoy.

The illustrations below are not copies of illustrations in the magazine (Except for the flame). However, I tired to copy the style. I would like to continue learning how create this style of illustration. Ultimately I think it would be cool to be able to re-imagine the present and future through the eyes of a 1960's illustrator.


Note: I was motivated to get my pencils out by +Julie Hutchinson and +Nina Kuriloff, thank you both for your endless encouragement and not giving up on me. I really enjoyed getting my brain back into it :)

What to do when you find "your" painting in history? In 1887 to be exact. As a painter I go about my days, well, painting paintings - at least as much as possible. But sometimes in the evenings I get to scout around and look at the work of other artists. This is how I found what could easily be one of my paintings that was painted by Jan Toorop. He doesn't seem to have done anything else like it but I still thought you might like to see it...

Totally had a change of pace with this abstract as I started out with my two least favorite colors, brown and grey. What I discovered was that they helped mellow my other colors into a more mature palette and gave me the confidence to embrace their potential. Looking forward to seeing it framed in my show!

this is from the +Chrysta Rae's Photography Scavenger Hunt from last March.  It was for the word Gross.  It didn't place since some of y'all are way grosser than me but that doesn't matter.  This was a win for me and my family because we had so much fun taking these shots.  

Right now I am running around taking my plan B shots in case my ideas for plan A don't materialize. For plan A I need time, good weather, and an understanding family :)

(why not use the contours while they're just laying around?)
BTW,  I know it's long,  but I get naked in the second half and loose track of time.

Today, I used a couple of Contour Cams with the Canon to try a little scene syncing and free-form jamming, no plan, just play.  The background music is a little track I created for continuous jamming, and I play the instruments on it as well.  Hope you like the cam changes,  and this is me,  stepping out of my zone.
