"flipped.draft"


"one.eighty.then.some"

Andrea commented yesterday that in her mind's EyE she had turned over the image in the prior post, the draft...

I had already flipped that draft using paint.net and I had also adjusted the lightest section to increase detail and contrast lost by the multiplying layer (copy and paste form prior version). Having the light boxes in the bottom right corner left the viewer's eye "there and static" more than I wanted. Composition was good - a rule was broken with some grace, but it was less lively than I often strive for. Nothing wrong with it, per se, but...but...but. In the end I flipped it over again.

Has everyone found the other.world yet? Chair and stare alike. Posts there will be left up for a while then removed (draft status) cuz the intent is just to share process with friends.

Oh, heck it is Monday.....

Much better...the lone figure in contemplation, standing in a field of green,rainbows...now I see a hint of Hitchcock in each vertical bar. Do you see what I see? Look in the darker verticals, sliver of black and below it actually looks like a figure standing sideways, hands in pockets. Better go eat my Wheaties and get to work.

Good day to you.

Hello:) Thanks for the welcome back! It is great to be in my nest again:) and I have missed your sense of humour! Am never checking the mail again however....

These colours are very autumn. I love the vertical lines and the weave affect it has created. Quite nest like!

I am going to print then - I don't want to miss anything and I like to slow-learn being by nature a fast and careless learner. A form of dyslexia, true skimming. I miss the main point often.
thanks for doing that. I have told Irene in case she didn't realise.
