Here is the final artwork in my initial series of 6 pop art paintings that I created of our local area:


Here is the composite photo I worked from (A mishmash of 3 different photos):


Castlecliff is our local beach. The sand is black and due to the large amount of forest around us and the large river mouth, there is always a fair amount of driftwood on the beach. The mountain in the background is Mount Taranaki which is a dormant volcano.

My plan now is to make prints of these artworks so I will need to take good photos of them first.

This weekend I bought a bunch of frames at different sizes so will make up a few framed print sets and a few unframed sets.

 :heeha:   This is my favourite! The composition is clean and simple, as are the colourings. I find this very soothing.... must be the sea.  :boat:
This whole series is fabulous Nolan.  :smitten:    :clap: :clap: :clap:
Cheers, Val

A beautiful example of what can be done in this style.

My favorite!  Thanks for showing how you manipulate the combo of photos.

Now that the series is painted, time to head for the print shop.  Do you do the color adjustment yourself, or is it your printer who does it?   We have a small printer shop here who will do the color adjustment (one must bring the original) for Can$20.  I will see the result at an exhibit later tonight.  The artist decided to give it a try, because she struggles with color adjustment.

I am going to do the adjustments myself. I am going to take the photo, have a small version printed to see what needs adjustment, then work from there
