Introducing leggings. Step into a world of stunning designs.

This artwork is a form of mixed media incorporating dye, oil, water and light on textured paper over a glass surface. The impermanent design created with these elements is then photographed to preserve the artwork. Since the medium is dynamic, and the design is in a constant state of change, I usually take several photographs during the process.

My focus as a photographer and digital artist ranges from traditional photography to PhotoArt compilation and the less explored world of abstract design created with natural elements such as smoke, oil and water.

    This is awesome! There are so many shapes and figures—a cat, a serpant, someone singing, even a gargoyle! You should have a contest to see who can find the most! Beautiful vibrant colors and such wonderful movement! Great job!

  • Wow: thank you so much for these great comments. This is one of those, “The more you look the more you find” images. I like the idea of a contest too.
    Thanks again for the great comments :-)

    Absolutely amazing Rihard! This REALLY shows what can be done! The textures are wonderful. I am going to be trying lots more with this technique in the future as I love experimenting. Thank you for expanding my horizons!

  • Thanks for the great comments Pauline. Just in case you decide to use paper in your designs, here are some thoughts: I’ve used different kinds of absorbent paper including coffee filters, (Sturdier and easier to maneuver) paper towels, (Cool quilted patterns) and toilet paper (Very light and wavy). This one has toilet paper in it.

    Estás llegando a un misticimo bárbaro, Richard.
    Pura acuarela libre y llena de expresividad.Me encanta tu poder de inventiva y de investigación.
    Pintar con luz y aceite…con tintas y con reflejos de la luz…pintar con los materiales metidos en la cámara.
    Precioso e intenso, Richard.

  • Muchas gracias Rosa. Me he divertido mucho con este proyecto, y es fascinante ver como se van formando los diseños al mezclar y modificar los elementos :-)

    Opening doors to the imagination here Richard. Will fav this to follow up and try sometime. Thanks so much for sharing your work sequence. BB

  • Thank you so much for looking and commenting … and fave’ing for later :-)
    I used a glass table with the light shining up from below and the whole concoction mixed in a thin, disposable plastic plate. Let me know when you get ready to try it and/or have any questions.
    Regards,
    Richard

    ¿Sabes que un gato está emergiendo de la calidez burbujeante de una charca de verdor y sangre…?
    Lo acabo de ver…y no lo pude ver la vez primera.¡¡.es magia..!!!
    Rosa (abrazotes para tí)

  • Si, es un animal! Siempre que veo esta obra me recuerda a la canción Toda Mojaíta (Gecko Turner & Danny J Lewis). La escucho por mi I-Pod mientras camino por las calles y me levanta el animo con una sonrisa. Pienso que estas obras fueron inspiradas por la música latina, o mas bien Iberoamericana, ya que algunas canciones son de españoles como Gecko Turner y otras son por artistas de Cuba, la República Dominicana y etc. Esta en particular enfatiza la pasión animal del hombre (libido) y el estimulo sexual que siente al ver el cuerpo de la mujer. Cuando oigo la canción imagino un hombre recargado contra la pared mirando el mundo pasar por la calle cuando de repente pasa una guapa en mini falda y lo lleva por el libido. Que rica distracción! En muchos países este “Calor” se critica como pecado, pero en otros, como la República Dominicana, es casi celebrado.
