Having fun -

"Condos at the Yacht Basin"
montage by Mick Mather
I took my own good advice from yesterday and spent a good deal of time just having fun with another old image that wasn't really going anywhere. After applying an overlay of grids, spirals, lines and a stock graphic I got lucky again and was gaining enthusiasm for what was developing. Not long after dumping the works into another editor - running it through a few more filters and adding another layer - up popped the tiny little yacht basin at Cannes, France. Okay, that's a bit of a stretch given the background grid reminiscent of a seaside, post-modern condominium complex. Now that I think about it, I suppose it could be the pizza I had for dinner that triggered this memory. The best slice I had in all of Europe was in Cannes, overlooking that little harbor. Anyway, it's what I've been thinking about for the past twenty minutes.

I love these colours! Orange is my favourite colour, black also, red, too.

I'm pleased that I was able to use your favorites in this piece. It was a bit of a struggle getting it all to blend properly but, once I found the right levels of transparency between layers, it was the colors that drove this all the way home for me as well. (blush!) :)

I’ve come to look this several times...I don’t know what I see there…this just doesn’t open to me…like your other works I somehow get right away…though I like this…
