I loved finding this as a work in process on a small Thames Beach. I was some distance from it and the artist artist and his tools kept on getting in the way. It was difficult to find an angle to shoot from. Must and been 20 feet away and with limited vistas as London crowds milled around.
Finding the picture again whilst supporting the #texturehunterproject i was glad to be able to crop. Manipulation of colour was difficult too as sand is seen to have a limited colour palette. The shadows helped as did pushing contrast. However, i had to revisit and revisit to get just the right shades of red, gold and blue (royal colours for a king). An exercise in persistence and i think as an atheist an exercise in facing up to the demands of iconography
Does sand glisten with sunlight, hence in all colours of the rainbow? If not what blocks it capturing the sunlight to glisten and refract it’s light back and in all the colours of light’s prism? Just Curious. I’m not a Poet.
And like your pieces in rooms of Art and Poetry.
Thank you Anna for both your comments.
Regards the first one. There is poetry in your question. My honest answer. I’ve no idea. What I do know is i crop and colour manipulate my photographs with limited software allowing a very limited colour palette. In some ways this is good because i’m not great at colours and it thrills me that i can get satisfaction out of colour at all.
Regards the art + poetry this is a collaboration with my good friend Charlet Wilson / sometimes i get other people to play too. Sometimes i send a poem to Charlet which she illustrates and sends back. Sometimes when i have an image that fits the C-rhyme i send both and Charlet or someone else puts them together. Again this is because my use of technology and indeed my skills as an artist/designer are very limited.
If it sounds like i’m being modest i’m not. I’m great. (LOL) I’m good at achieving/realising pieces of work using what i’ve got. I’m starting two new projects today. I’m writing a play for a micro commission and i’ve found a very snazzy device for creating self portraits whilst on lockdown. I think my adaptation of practicalities is greater than my imagination but following simple processes fires my creativity.
Hope that helps in some way.
