A Little Rant

The new Website is up and running although there will be small changes I’m sure. I was Using Adobe Muse and I liked the application, unfortunately, Adobe Decided that the application did not have a future and stopped supporting it. I have gone back to my old standby Dreamweaver but it has taken me a few weeks to relearn it. I’m really annoyed with Adobe because I started using Muse and liked it. Now I’m back to Dreamweaver. I like Dreamweaver and Adobe has improved it immensely and it is the better, more powerful application. I’m just annoyed that I spent time learning a new application and liked it.

Nature Is A Little Grey

I like bright colours but I notice when I’m looking at a landscape that the colours are a little on the grey side. When I was working as a wedding photographer I noticed that I always turned up the colour saturation when I was adjusting the pictures; actually, I had to be careful about that because there is a fine line between a great photo and an oversaturated one. It’s not quit so important with painting but I still like bright colours and the grey tone I perceive in nature is important for the reality illusion. For a painting to elicit the Reality Illusion the colours and shades need to be a little on the grey side to match a colour as seen in nature. This may just be my perception of an image but it does make sense because it’s unlikely that a natural colour would be what we think of as a pure saturated colour. They do exist in nature, a butterfly’s wings for example, but that has more to do with how the colours are produced.
