I've had several people ask me recently how I create my digital artwork. It starts with some rather ordinary photos that I layer & blend together digitally. I do most of this work on my phone. It takes a long time and I always have a phone with me so I can work on them throughout my day wherever I am. I try to create every day and working on my phone is the best way for me to ensure that I can.
Below are the original photos that went into the final composition that you see above. This one probably took about 2 hours to create and I scrapped many versions of it before I arrived at this one.
Someone asked me last weekend why I use so much pink in most of my work. I don't have a good answer for that except that I really love bright pinks and nothing feels quite finished until I find a way to work it in. We love what we love and sometimes there's just no logical reason for it.
Often, as in this piece, I use some of the same photos more than once but they get turned or changed in some other way when I repeat them. I like to go back and look at the final results to see if I can still find traces of the originals. It's a good metaphor for life. The pieces put together are always stronger than the individual photos themselves.
Have a great week and if you have any questions on this, please let me know.
