Light energizes me - it always has!
For as long as I can remember I have been drawn to light, whether it is the green light of an impending storm, the golden hues of a sunset, or the interplay of light and shadow caused by reflected light. I love to see the light bouncing off the ripples of a rushing stream, or reflecting off a window into a gloomy alleyway between densely packed buildings in a city.
My convergent media work is not only inspired by light, but truly captures the energy of light.
First, my starting image is "drawn with light" through the medium of photography.
I then digitally process the images in my "light room" using multiple software programs. I will create multiple versions of the imagery - different exposures, versions that I have painted using digital brushes, digital sketches - and blend these together, to create my vision of the scene.
Typically I also add in some pure light from other photographs, to enhance the luminosity within the picture, and I emphasize the lines at the focal point, to give an embossed effect. I will often apply an impasto texture to the whole scene too; this adds a slightly 3D effect to the final print.
Generally I recommend canvas prints of my work, as this allows you to really appreciate the textured effects and to see the world in a different light ...
