I want to revisit my post Wind Turbines from May 21, 2014. I did a photo shoot of the wind turbines located along Interstate 10 in the east Coachella Valley near Palm Springs, California. I showed some examples of cropping and converting some of the shots to black and white photographs. As a follow-up, I thought I would show you one of those shots that I took a step further. Using an abstract painting technique I have attached a completed art print that I have now put into my Abstract Watercolor Gallery. The subject matter has an interesting appeal to me in the shapes, forms and symmetry of their placement. The technique I used creates sharp edges and presents the subject in a more abstract look. Using warm color tones helps display the contrast between the natural mountain back drop and the stark lines of the wind turbines.
I have also re-attached the series below starting with the final black and white photo and working my way back to the original before cropping.
What are your thoughts? It’s ok to say…you know what Kirt…I prefer the black and white or I actually think the color photo is better. We are all individuals with individual tastes. As I keep saying, there is no right or wrong, just what appeals to you.
I invite you to come into the gallery to view the new additions to the collection in the Abstract Watercolor Gallery.
