Bitter Grounds - espresso fueled ramblings

Wednesday, June 28, 2017

I'm working on a digital art series about street scenes in Toronto highlighting everyday life.  Kind of like street motions with a bit of digital artwork blended in. The first one, I'm still working on. I might rework it with a new style I'm happier with one. So ... this is No 1 in the series:

Berzcy Park, downtown Toronto, Ontario - digital art

Berzcy Park Under Construction

Berzcy Park at Wellington and Front, Toronto, Ontario
Sept. 16, 2016

The park is undergoing a renewal and I've looked at it over the past few months wondering what to do with a shot of it under construction.  Well, on Friday, while wandering past on the way to a job an idea hit me. NIK few filters that make saturation pop, but I could control which areas I want to highlight. Then run it through a few filters, blending and adjustments and bingo: construction as digital art, so to say. Something about the iconic Flatiron building with the cement truck tweaked my attention. I'm happy with this. It's now my desktop background.  If you want a larger version, pop me a line and I'll load one up for you.

Look for more to come. I'm slow in doing them, it takes a lot of trial compositions before I'm happy with the texture and feel.
