My new interests as a contributor here on DT is in the creation of things that whirl around in my head. I find myself collecting things and textures. The one I am finding the most use for (at the moment) is this cracked asphalt driveway of a home in my neighborhood.
It is so compelling to look at and has so many uses. When I begin a new 'canvas' I spend much time developing the idea that it becomes my goal to have more than one finished product. Much like contributors on a shoot where they have their model pose in many ways or use many expressions. My goal is to have 2 to 3 uses for a subject matter.
In the case the texture was the driver of the imagery. Here are a few finished products using the cracked drive way. I use layers and streaks of colors at different opacities to achieve the tones and gold hues (gold is also a current favorite of mine... well that and blue!).
NOOO please don't tell them their driveway looks like a desert! I did a quick drive by shooting on their driveway so they don't know my real feelings! By the way the rest of my neighborhood isn't nearly as interesting! I guess that is good thing LOL.
Eti, you know you are my all-time PS hero and it just gets better and better. Wonderful work that I greatly admire... However, I think we should take up a collection to get your neighbor's driveway re-paved after you are done admiring the cracks. Do your neighbors know you have this fixation for their cracked driveway???
