Here are scans of some recent darkroom prints from my experimental class. the landscape images directly below are from a 4×5 medium format class using a view camera.
serene lake and a weeping willow tree @ Frederick Meijer Gardens
white birch tree- interesting texture- also taken at Frederick Meijer Gardens
some leaves that i put in the enlarger, covered with tissue paper. no negative used.
a still life print of coffee, taken with a view camera/ 4.5 film. rings are coffee cup dipped into developer and used as a stamp on the paper after darkroom exposure.
Going to the beach at night is the best thing ever! This one’s colored pencils and paint pen.
After a 2 month haitus, I finally finished this one up last night. at 3 am. while watching the British version of ‘The Office’. Its so much funnier than the English version! Its so hilarious! Anyway, I made this for my friend’s birthday, who recently moved to Tamarindo (jealous, ya?) to help lead a church. hence, the little grass-hut church in the background. I’ve seen pictures of the church, and it is literally one huge grass hut! This one’s colored pencils and paint pens. Happy New Year!
These are a couple of night shots- the first one is moonlight reflecting on the lake, and the second one is a tree on the Bay Hill golf course which was backlit by a street lamp.
finished up a colored pencil drawing of a girl walking through pineapple rows to a sunrise and good surf.. guess you could say i’ve been daydreaming a bit lately. surely this scene exists somewhere in Hawaii, right? included some soft pastels in the water and outlined in paint pen.
