Carried away – with Waverley!

Don’t worry, I’m still doing children’s art and writing. It’s just that I recently shot my lovely spelter statue of Waverley and, since someone in days of yore painted it black to look more posh (spelter was apparently for poor people!), it made a nice silhouette, complete with dust. Who needs to add noise to a photo when they don’t dust their ornaments??

So I collaged and grunged it a bit and this is the result. Hope you like it. The first version didn’t have a window, but I think it now has more depth and perhaps a story.

This collage/layering business – art-ing up your photos – is very enticing, although, as a former keen photographer, I do know it doesn’t mean you stop trying to take decent photos. Just that you have another purpose in mind when shooting. Like silhouetting my beloved Waverley and his dusty coat to revamp him in a mysterious place!
