Thread: Variations On A Theme

    Variations On A Theme

    As you know I have been suffering from a lack of inspiration this weekend so I dragged the toys out of the box and had a good play. Keeps me quiet and I do not have to think about photography

    I like them! (surprise surprise)

    How many images have you used? I can see Poly once in the first one and twice in the second. Has 3 been overlayed with water? Sorry I'm dissecting them.

    1 and 2 feel like a cross between Dali and traditional Japanese paintings to me. I think I prefer 1 over 2 but they are hard to split. 1 is a simpler image. 3 and 4 appeal to me because of the subject matter.

    Not bad at all for a lack of inspiration!

    The rest are nice. This is brilliant. It's got power, vitality, dynamism (a bit like me really). It just pops and is a magnificent creation.

    Let us know when you start thinking about it again - I'm not sure we could handle it!

    I've told you before you're a genius ... so I'm not going to do it again!

    Aw go on you know I love it when you talk dirty....everyone on CiC is a genius

    I cannot remember how may layers I used. I tend not to note what I do in case I start using the same processin over and over. I want to try and make each one unique. However, I can give you a rough idea what I did for the first 2. You have guessed most of it

    First take one large blue inflatable paddling pool full of clean water

    Variations On A Theme

    Then gently fold in a dodgy composite that was sitting at the back of the fridge (definitely past its sell by date)

    Blend in a milky composite so that the resulting mix adheres to a spoon without dripping

    At this stage I tipped in a good schooner full of grey gradient layer. Simply opened a blank sheet and applied gradient tool and open it as a layer in the composite.

    Finally add two or three layers or marzipan...I mean texture....I used some shots I did of a stainless steel sheet at a skate park (nicely scratched and stained). Each layer of texture was in a different orientation using different layer masks. You just have to mess about really until you get the image that was in your head.

    Wait a sec Was that Katy's..I mean Suzy's scone recipe...the 'Today' thread has a lot to answer for

    You really are cooking now Steve

    I would never have thought of a wading pool. That is thinking outside the box. I love it. But it's that splash of water that reminds me of Japanese art. Have you seen these sorts of paintings?

    You certainly make me think about images. Keep it up - it's good for my brain and my imagination.
