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.

    Love the way you use the shadows….they have an incredible warmth and vivacity. The resulta is fascinating here.

  • Thank you Rosa. I was intrigued by the textures here and the flakes of orange paint below the blue – they reminded me of embers. I agree with your statement about shadows adding a sense of warmth and life. This is another addition to a series I’m developing on found art in industry. The wall surounds an automotive manufacturing plant. It was once painted bright orange and then covered with a light blue that is fading and peeling. I wonder what color they’ll paint it next?

    Whatever color they will use it will create an even more interesting pattern on the way. sometimes I find that worn out things are more alive than the brand new ones….but this may be an occurrence of myself becoming older….and older…..ha,ha, ha,…Anyway I love the “momentum” you have created in here.
    Abrazotes!

    Compelling viewing, RIchard! An “off the wall” composition, if you’ll pardon the pun! ;o)

  • Oh, you’re so punny :-) Thanks for the great comments Krys.
