Dainty Red Series – Featured Art Prints Part Two

As a follow-up to last weeks post “Dainty Red Series – Part One” , I wanted to show where that series of prints took me next.

For my “Inspiration Gallery”, I use existing prints I have created and marry them with words of inspiration, motivation, prayers or Bible verses. Actually it truly is the other way around, I usually come up with the verbiage first and then figure out a photograph or print that best highlights the words. I featured the first print during the Easter Season last spring. I was working with this Bible verse and this print come into view as perfect for a very direct simple message.

Love Each Other Red Single Stem art print featured on my blog last April.

 

With this message in mind, I wanted the same simplistic look with just enough spacing to keep the message from getting lost, thus the double stem.

Being on a roll as they say, this verbiage seemed perfect to use the single stem again. All three were created one right after the other as the verses I was working with fit perfectly with these simple prints.

Dainty Red Series – Featured Art Prints – Part One

The series I am featuring today was originated by a request from one of my clients. They wanted a series of art prints for a room they were working on. The request was for “something” using the color red, floral in subject matter and simplistic in look. I would like to say I immediately envisioned exactly what that would be, but in all candor I played with a number of designs before I arrived at what ultimately became these prints. I settled on small red flower blooms on stems. The series included bouquets and singular stems. I used two different techniques to create these prints. The first technique created an abstract look that took on sharp clean lines defining the blooms and the stems. When that was finished, I then used a very subtle watercolor technique to soften the look just a bit creating the final result.

The watercolor technique creates a softening on the petals and in the background, giving the white background a hint of texture.

This particular print “Dainty Red Double Stem” has become the most popular print in my entire gallery.  For me it complimented the single stem and played into the bouquets that follow.

This print and the next were used on a wall next to each other…

Soft Rose Bloom In Red And Purple – Featured Art Print

 

Soft Rose Bloom In Red And Purple is a wall art print I created using a soft watercolor technique. This technique creates defined lines that compliment a soft watercolor look. This print was just added to my Floral/Still life Gallery and was inspired by my photo shoot of rose blooms in the Arizona Territorial Rose Garden located on the grounds of the Sharlot Hall Museum in Prescott, Arizona. Thoughts?

Red Hibiscus – Featured Art Prints

I just completed (literally this morning) two art prints that I added to my Floral/Still Life Gallery. They are “Red Hibiscus Flower” and “Red Hibiscus Bloom”. Both prints were inspired by one of our Hibiscus bushes, which is now in full bloom. The blooms on this plant are incredibly large and very vibrant in their color. I worked on a couple of approaches to best compliment the simplicity and beauty of these tropical flowers and settled on a subtle watercolor technique. Thoughts?

I invite you to visit my Floral/Still Life Gallery to enjoy these prints and many more.

Peach Rose – Featured Art Print

My featured Art Print this week is a simple color photograph of a rose. I call it “Peach Rose’ as it reminds me of the coloring of a large fresh peach. I will be adding this to my Color Photography Gallery.

Maybe it seems a little weird that I’m showcasing a rose bloom early in December, but it is a recent photograph I thought turned out beautifully. I took this shot during the Thanksgiving weekend while we were staying in Los Angeles. The home we were staying in has numerous flower gardens around the property and I couldn’t resist some macro shots.

What drew me into this bloom was the lighting and coloring. The sun was shining on the rose bloom from an angle and the lighting behind the bloom was subdued with subtle shadows. The color reminded me of the large peaches we use to grow when we lived in Denver. We had an incredible peach tree just off the back deck and the coloring on those peaches as they ripened was similar to this bloom.

“Peach Rose” is a celebration of simplicity, color and nature’s beauty. Thoughts?

 

I invite you to come into the gallery to view the addition of new art prints to the collection in Color Photography.
