Welcome to my ‘Showcase’ Gallery. Designed to present new material, each month I’ll be sharing with you a new image which I’ve been working on and refining.
This month I’d like to introduce:
I often have to ‘revisit’ and think about an image when I write an Exposed Blog Post about it. This was exactly the case for the triptych ‘Follow the Yellow Brick Road’. While preparing and sizing the images for my Post, I re-discovered a couple of smaller cropped sections from the original source image. Deciding that these two smaller selections were worth mixing and matching, I set about experimenting with how they looked together, flipping and rotating as I went to add variety.
Thinking on a larger scale, I decided to try a nine-panel layout – something which I haven’t done before! The three basic primary colours played off each other nicely, but the difficulty lay in, not only distributing the colours equitably across the whole ‘canvas’, but also having some connecting line or pattern which would solidify and unify the whole work.
I finally hit upon the blue ‘stairway’ leading up (or down) the middle panels. This helps to ground ‘Ascension Blue’, but I must admit, I also enjoy seeing if the other colourful stairs can map out a safe journey too.
If you’d like a reminder to check back in a month’s time to see the next ‘Showcase’ image, please sign up to my Newsletter. I’ll keep you up to date with everything else that’s been going on too!
