Spring Photopainting Work in Progress

March 1st, 2020

Spring Photopainting Work in Progress

1.2.20

In my last post I shared my Spring photopaintings, works in progress, of buds in a tree.

Signs of Spring photopainting 2 by  onlythemoon



In this post, I wanted to write a bit more about the creation process in making these works.

I added different brush strokes and experimented with light effects.Β Enhancing the photograph digitally, gives it a painterly quality, moving towards abstraction. The limited color palette simplifies the image, allowing the viewer to focus on the buds and leaves, the texture and tonal qualities of the landscape.

I really like the simplicity in the monochrome images, allowing our eyes to focus on the buds against the textured background. The buds appear to reach out beyond the tree-line, highlighting the new growth ahead.

Here's the original photograph so that you can see how the photopainting has developed. If you can't see the image, you can check it out on my blog.

Signs of Spring

Signs of Spring

29.2.20

I look around & there are signs of spring to be seen, dotted throughout the landscape. The daffodils though windswept, are cheerily waving their yellow heads, heralding that Spring won’t be far behind. Buds are starting to appear, showing signs of regrowth and change.

Reflected Landscapes, Alternate Views of our World

February 22nd, 2020

Reflected Landscapes, Alternate Views of our World

20.2.20


Reflections are curious, they are a version of our reality, of our existence, the same but different, distorted. These reflected landscapes, shadows, and the low golden Winter sunlight and sunsets are present in my current works in progress.

Shadows like reflections, offer an alternative view of our reality. Shadows also remind me of our wider world, our place in the solar system, and our universe. They remind me of our place in something bigger than ourselves.

And the Sun Goes To Sleep

And the Sun Goes To Sleep

17.2.20

The rain has subsided but has left pools of liquid and light everywhere, there is a mini lake where there was previously farmland, the paths, and roads have tidemarks of debris and mud. The wind howls, pushes and holds. But the sun shone and warmed our hearts. Until the wind pushed once more. & the rain started again, with a cold bite that hadn’t been there before. With the feel of winter all around, there are glimpses of Spring...

Rainy Day

February 16th, 2020

Rainy Day

16.2.20 (or 2.16.20 - depending on where you live!)

I woke up today to be surrounded by floodwater again. Where I am, we are not within flooding distance of a river, stream or brook, but a field that has taken on water - fast and is now overflowing into the road, drives, and gardens, encroaching on our homes. Tonight I’ll probably make sure we have a go-bag and put any valuables on β€œhigher” ground.Β 

Here, it feels like the earth is reclaiming her land, like our homes might be in the way of an ancient waterway...

Edit this 2020 2 Waterside Abstract Landscapes

Check out my entries for the Edit this 2020 - 2 contest on Fine Art America!

I've blended and fused the contest photograph, a waterside landscape, with my own photographs, including my cyanotypes and made use of vignettes created from photographs, to reveal partial and focused views of the waterside landscape.

The painterly effects include rendering the image to resemble the surface of water, sublime impressionist light effects, and rich fauvist colour schemes.
