How do I create my composites? The
first thing I do is remove the
backgrounds in the photos that I'll use as elements or "building
(hummingbirds, sea shells, butterflies, etc.). Then I
each of these elements, one at a time, onto a blank page in Adobe
Photoshop. I resize, rotate, distort, skew, and colorize the
necessary until I've placed
the last photo onto the page.
I print the completed
on museum-quality fine art paper or heavy-weight artist's canvas using my Epson
Pro 7600 and Ultra Chrome pigments.
Just like my watercolor paintings, each
of my composites is a signed
original. Those printed on fine art paper come matted, backed, and
ready to frame. Those on canvas come stretched and ready to hang (framing is optional).
