I thought I might try adding to some of my stranger pinhole images. I printed some out on 17" x 22" cold press paper and just started experimenting. This one I drew on with water color pencils and then blended some with water. I think it's a fun start, but I definitely think I could push it further.
Next I took one of my silhouette images and tore up a silkscreen print from last semester that I felt spoke to how I see this cabin and added it as a layer.
On a silhouette broken barn image I layered multiple torn pieces of the same silkscreen silkscreen to the image because I feel like the barn is being torn apart.
I tried applying dried pressed ferns to the same barn image, because I feel like nature is taking over the old barn. I printed haphazard planks and added elements to the sky. It's still not right, but I feel it's closer.
To the cabin I planked the side with birch bark, silkscreened over it, and added color to the sky. Then I added a number of dried botanicals to creat a tactile three dimensional forest.
I had printed some of my ice images large as well. I took rice paper and tore pieces to form layers of 'ice' to layer on top of my photographs. I watercolored the undersides of these paper pieces so the color would bleed through, but be mor muted and the brush strokes less distinct.
On this image I applied dead leaves, and tucked dried grass and pine needles under the paper
On this image I applied all manner of things; moss and parts of pinecones to the stump, curling twigs coming from the stump, and leaves on the ice.
All of these projects been a fun investigation that I hope opens another door for me, even if I don't think I've created any one completely successful image. So I think I'll try some more.
