During my Thanksgiving trip and beyond, the days got away from me. I’ve been working and finishing a piece of Yosemite Falls that appears here. You can see the original print and then the finished piece with all the layers assembled on screen, plus a detail. This is what I guess could be called a tessalation piece. I think of it as a pattern of Yosemite Falls. The photograph is manipulated and then printed on several surfaces for assembling.
Layers of the print are:
1. Epson Water Resistant Artist Canvas
5. Lutradur heat distressed
followed by non printed layers of
6. painted or dyed cheesecloth
7. overdyed recycled art work ( these are pieces of my older work I cut up an dye), dyed burlap or canvas
Yosemite Falls is wondrous and one of the delights of Yosemite National Park that are dear to my heart. Next I will be working on a different type of digital presentation of Yosemite Falls from a large print on dyed canvas. Still working out the details, so it will be awhile. As I start the piece I will put some pictures up on the planning stage.
There are several other projects to finish before my next Yosemite Falls piece. Check later this week and I will tell you about what this month will be focused on as well as Christmas with my family here in Prescott.
