he's of the colour of the nutmeg
and of the heat of the ginger
he is pure air and fire
and the dull elements of the earth
never appear in him
but only in patient stillness
while his rider mounts him
he is indeed a horse
and all other jades
you may call beasts
william shakespeare, henry v
pears and horses?
the common thread here is nutmeg
the nutmeg texture i used to add richness, warmth and spice to this photo of pears
like the richness of nutmeg that william shakespeare
uses to describe the beautiful horse
the art form of adding textures
has really gripped me
so much so
that kim klassen
has asked me to take position
of master chef in her texture test kitchen!
while i hardly deserve that kind of title
i do so love to play with her amazing textures
today, she will be taking my original pear image
and creating a number of variations of her own ...
she will have them up later today
i will begin a weekly series
of posting before . after . and recipes
creating art from photos ...
artography, if you will ...
from the test kitchen!
today's spicy pear study
uses kim's nutmeg and wet tile textures
and a couple of other little twists ...
