Playing with Photo and Painting Combos

 

Once again I am playing with combining photos I’ve taken recently with some of the painting and sketchbook drawings I’ve done. I don’t know whether or how I will use them, but they are fun to experiment with. There are of course lots of combinations with blending modes and different repetitions of layers. ¬†For these I am letting the colors of the painting determine the final colors, for the most part.

Then a simple collage of three small repeats of the beautiful shape of a milkweed pod with no color changes but with the blending mode used for subtlety in the collage blend. (Hard light gave this result.)

Then another blend of sketchbook drawing with the fall grasses (before yesterday’s snow1).

Really have no immediate plans to use these, but I like the effects and textures. Just have to wait and see where my quilt designs go.
