The evolution of "Evolution" | #ForgottenLives
Some more details about this piece:
I started it with the hope of posting my progress continually and with great detail. I didn't post down to the nitty gritty like I had originally wanted - life and work got in the way and it became difficult to share all those details towards the end. But I hope what I shared was a little glimpse into my artistic world. I plan on sharing more of the multi-layered processes I go through when working and I have a lot of new work in the works.
I put this video together to show a small amount of the layering. In it, you'll notice the feathers in groups but when laying them out, I did them individually. I had hundreds upon hundreds of layers in my Photoshop file before merging them for the sake of this video. In addition, I left out the coloring, blurring, dodging and burning. And the cutting out of all the little trees and rocks I photographed.
This piece was truly a labor of love but worth every painstaking minute. Before I move on to posting new work, I'll share some more detailed shots. This is the kind of piece that needs to be seen on a large screen or printed large - a lot of details feel lost when looking at a small screen.
And for any of you that are interested, you can order prints of my work on my website - link in bio.
Happy Tuesday to all. 💫
