The Lady in Blue

Blue-Lady-Final

I was inspired to create “The Lady in Blue” when I was looking through some of my old art history books.  I love the old portraits by Richard Brinkley Sheridan, John Singer Sargent, Charles Albert Walhain, Gainsborough.  Though I am inspired by these great artist I always have to add that twist to mine.  The abandoned house in the background with lights on, giant bees, a butterfly bow and a dramatic sky.  Always a dramatic sky.

The abandoned house was photographed at Fort Hancock in Sandy Hook, NJ.  The meadow was photographed at Rockefeller State Preserve in Pocantico Hills, New York, the clouds are a texture by Photomorphis, the bees and butterfly are from the Graphics Fairy and the woman in blue is an image from e-vint.com.

Processing was done in Photoshop CC, Macphun Intensify, Topaz Restyle and Impressions.  Many photoshop layers later I had “The Lady in Blue”.

I am going to be exhibiting two of my images, “Witch Tree” (shown below in the promotion piece) and “The Captain” with the Red Circle PhotoArts Group at the Desmond-Fish Library Gallery in Garrison, New York.  There was also an article written about Red Circle PhotoArts here.
