Photo Art Friday - Texture
"Texture is the most enduring and ubiquitous underpinning of form... certainly a calming, meditative and appealing world for both the eye and mind." ~Lynda Lehmann
I love the texture that Bonnie's "Brown Rice Paper" gave to my photo art this week. It gave the look of a rough canvas, so I decided to run with it and make it look an old painting. I wanted it to look like one of those paintings you come across at an antique store...one of those old, paint-by-numbers paintings leaning up against a wall in the musty back room...forgotten, of little value, but imprinted with memories from someone who once loved it enough to hang it on their wall.
I took this image in October when the leaves were turning. In addition to Bonnie's brown rice paper texture (inverted, and then used at Linear Light/100%), I added several layers of old book flyleaf pages to give it some wear and tear. As always, I put it into Radlab throughout the process to tweak it.
