Surreal lily seies

Post by RBorud » Fri Dec 22, 2017 2:14 pm

Hi All
Here is one image of a series I made for a book called THE SURREAL LILLY. I do love flowers and collect images of them nearly obscenely. I had an idea of making surreal constructions of them. There were many images, but here is one to give you all an idea of where I was going with this project.

That's one that, if you decided to print it, I think would work really well on metal. It already looks metallic! Silver and gold, actually! (OK)

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

Really sure catching. I agree with Chuck this would probably look great as a metallic print. It would really enhance those colors with all that black around it.

The illustrator in me would like to see some black lines introduced into the flower to define some of the shape, but that's just me.

I was looking at this on my tablet and when I changed the tablet's orientation I looked at an upside down version (flowers pointing up) which appealed to me even more. Take a look and see what you think.

They are indeed surreal. Glass would be my choice for printing such a thing were I to undertake it. I'm curious about your steps. This is something I'd be tempted to run through Google Deep Dream to see what creatures are living in there, because surely this is an enchanted forest.

Charles Thanks for your advice, and you are very right, and I did just that for favored niece with a very avangard apartment. WHCC did it for me, I do like their metallic paper better than others I have worked with. We did it quite large and it did demanded its space and obedience from all who viewed, and I must admit I giggled a bit in pleasure. Thanks for looking. RBorud

Thanks Duck for your thoughts. The line bit is interesting, I will cogitate. Thanks RBorud

Thanks minniev for your (enchanting) observations. Please forward any creature observations, I do not like to miss things. Thanks RBorud

Your comment is delightful, RBorud! It adds such a satisfying personal element when viewing a work of art to be able to interact with the photographer/creator. Thank you so much for your artistry and your presence here on pM.
