The Red Chairs
A quick Coffee 2014
It was a cold winters day so we called in for a coffee at this little cafe in Wheelton. If, its still there after so long I really don't know.
We sat in the window with a latte and I expect a piece of cake, as there were several varieties to choose from. The room was covered with various decorations, all linked to the cafe in some way.
There was a larger table with several people sat opposite. This table had four painted chairs, the one that caught my eye was the red ones. The focal point of the image is actually the white chair that stands out from the table. Obviously, hadn't been pushed under the table.
On this occasion it was perfect. The chair away from the table allowed into the image giving you an invitation to the table.
The manipulation in the image is to highlight the movement of the chairs and people during the day at the cafe.
The image has ten layers and only one additional texture.
A Daily Walk
With the dog 2019
We're all expected to do our daily walk but it has to be local. There's only so much you can do It reminded me of the images I made in 2019 about waking in a fantasy of colour and shape. .
One of the things I do enjoy, when I'm playing with images an painting.I'm using something simple to make somethings new.
This set is created from Colour Splash images that I've created and have used for many images as Backgrounds and overlays. There's nothing like getting messy and having fun with colours no matter what the medium.
These are just for me. So, no rules or expectations and they created simply to create.
This is the startup point for the image and then I have 8 layer only
The people and dog shapes are created form a home made brushes. The original images, taken on Crosby Beach.
Hope you like them and you have some fun.
A coulemore from the set. I hope you like them and maybe feel like going for a walk :O)
I’m archiving my images while we’re on lockdown. During the process I thought you might like to hear the background that goes with the image. There’s colour and mono and occasionally even before and after.
Lots of happy memories on adventures with friends and family
