April 8th, 2016 – Avian Friday: Painted Predator

This weeks post again has something a little different from the usual  bird photograph. Those of you who are regular viewers know that I’ve tried to  expand my photography to include a more artistic  techniques. Recently as well as painting, I’m experimenting with mono printing using a gelatin plate instead of a printing press. I scanned  a couple of images of the prints and layered with different blending modes in an iPad program to use as a background for the  image of a Northern Harrier. There are ton of options to be explored with this technique and I’ve also got some ideas for incorporating woodwork.
