Mixing it Up

autumn still life

Photo Art Friday has become one of my favorite linkups and although it is not a requirement, I try to use Bonnie's textures in my contributions to the link up. In this composition, I used her dark navy night, acceptance, and one life textures.

This represents the first appearance of the gourds I bought out of guilt at the pumpkin patch the other day.  I knew when I saw them that I wanted to use them in a tri-color piece with simple greens, yellows and whites.  I happen to love white dishes and I had this pitcher that turns out is quite photogenic. A white cake plate elevates a few of the gourds and I positioned the table in front of the mirrored armoire in my home office.  I loved the reflection of pitcher in the mirror, and couldn't resist adding texture so I could use it in this week's PDPA challenge.

The untextured piece with some Radlab processing also appealed to me greatly.  As I learn how to create different recipes in Radlab, I find myself using textures less although I still love them and they totally change the feel of a composition in beautiful ways.  I'm enjoying mixing it up a bit.

  1. Leanne, I think that these flowers and your texturing are lovely! Always enjoy your posts. Have a great weekend! Jeanne How is that fine arts site going. Need to begin working on something of my own.

  2. Hi LeAnne, Your work is beautiful. It reminds me of an old masters painting from long ago. I am looking forward to exploring your blog a little more. Happy Weekend!

  3. Your photos prove that mixing it up is a good thing. Why only stick to one method? I like these two different outcomes.


Thanks for stopping by and visiting my blog. Your comments are very much appreciated!
