The Distance Between


Like a watercolor.

T

he end of the day was spectacular so I actually made some new photographs. I don’t usually make a lot of cloud pictures but what could I do? The were moving in all sorts of patterns and shapes.

I selected the one I liked best and did minimal work, but I decided to make a vertical crop right into the heart of it.

Then I started tinkering. I decided to do an overlay with the same picture except that I added some pastel color. I lined it up, made a few slight color corrections and I was done after thinking that this newest work looked like a watercolor painting.

I’m not the biggest fan of digital paintings but I can’t paint so this is the next best thing. Before you say that maybe I should take lessons or classes. I did and I have. I just can’t paint. Maybe I should do the ten thousand repetitions thing. These are paintings we are talking about. That many of them would take me into my 90s.

So, I’ll make digital paintings.

But, the photograph has to be just right. The scene has to be just right. And, I have to see just right. That’s rare for the three to come together like they did for this picture. You know, magic and luck. This probably won’t happen again for months. So, don’t expect a big collection of these. I’m hoping for three by the end of 2022.

Happy Sunday.

    1. No. I checked and all the little sliders are set where they should be. I reset all of them, and reset the general settings. Could you do me a favor? I post daily at noon central time, I guess 11am your time. Could you check and see if anything is reaching you? Thanks, Ray
