Deb set us a challenge to transform her photo and add a quote
Now that was a challenge that I couldn’t resist so once I received the image from Deb I set too with PSE. The red is, well, very red so I removed it by turning the photo sepia before adding textures.
then I decided to add some red back as it is the defining component of the sunshade.
I was intrigued by the strong lines and pattern of the internal structure so I decided to play some more using these structures to create an abstract piece. I added a photo that I had taken on the river just before I read Deb’s challenge
and then duplicated and flipped the image to create a kaleidoscope effect which really uses the strong structure to create patterns
and repeated with 3 other blending modes and order of flipping
and found some good kaleidoscope quotes to go with them
At the height of laughter, the universe is flung into a kaleidoscope of new possibilities (Jean Houston)
Life is like an ever-shifting kaleidoscope – a slight change and all patterns alter (Sharon Salzberg)
Thanks Deb for a fun challenge and looking forward to seeing what others do with the red sunshade.
