Prisms of Light
There is a strong spiritual and optimistic feeling that I have in the early morning while waiting for the sun to appear and the first rays of light to hit my studio painting area which allows me to commence my painting with sunlight. I don’t get the same feeling when I flick the light switch on my studio spotlight! I used a single crystal prism with sunlight to create Prismatic Opus, plus a dozen digital layers. Unlike using the medium of paint, this feels more like what I would imagine alchemy to be, with touch of Zen thrown in for good measure! I also listened to the Gymnopedies by Erik Satie to set the mood while I painted… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dtLHiou7anE The painting process was recorded on my Nikon D700 digital SLR with a Nikon 85mm 1.4 lens.
