I enjoy the whole creative process from beginning to end and seek to discover and portray the world in all of it’s rich, intense colours and interesting forms, textures and subjects. I draw inspiration from the harmonious colour schemes often present in the natural environment when creating my Graphic Designs, or composing a Photograph or other work.

    Very nice, James. I saw this on the activity feed before it came up on my site. I love the colors, treatments and the spirit of the picture. xo

  • Yes, there’s a bit of logistics involved to also upload the original photo but hide that. Thanks for your great support Lori ! :0xx

    Love the treatment – gives it the sort of mariner feel you’d expect of such a piece Like it had been printed on an old piece of sail!
    Bravo! ♥

  • Thanks a lot Adgray ! Nice to see you drop by and thanks too for the fave ! It has two textures, but they’re not a sail – but I like your idea ! ♫:)♪

    Both works of art James, the photo and the touch up you are really good at this. Top marks

  • Thanks Gloria ! I feel very much like a beginner when I see what some people did in their post-processing work. I don’t fully understand how they actually did it.
