Twisted Limbs


Meticulous Mick

As I drove away from the rainbow and ventured inland, I was suddenly taken aback by the trees overhead. The lane was covered with a tangled covering of branches as they searched out the path to the best light.

I almost felt as if I was looking down into a reflection on water. It almost didn’t seem real. Alas, the light was rather flat, but I thought I would try and capture the entanglement anyway:

It some ways it reminded me of the ‘dark hedges‘ in Ballymoney, Co. Antrim, Ulster.

Sometimes You Have To Look At The Tiny Details In Order To See The Big Picture ~Omaste Witkowski

Abstract Art by Omaste Witkowski

LAYER 4 Today’s layer is #4 and consists of two images. One is the color paint layer and the other is how I have used the colored paint layer.
To start, I created a yellow/gold layer based on colors contained within the original design layer. I use the rectangle tool in Photoshop to create a layer. Then I make the layer a specific color using the color picker tool and choosing from my design. This way I keep all of the colors in my final picture compatible with each other.
After I have chosen the color I use a Snap Art filter to make the solid color more of a brushstroked color. I use short brush strokes, lots of color variations and lots of saturation and contrast. This makes a nice textured pattern that has some awesome color variations. Again they are all the same color tones as the original design.

It seems that “back in the day” automakers almost sculpted the lines and curves on cars. Fenders weren’t just part of the side, they were a statement to themselves. Let’s not forget the front grille, they weren’t just a ventilation system for the engine; they were a calling card about what the car stood for. Was it a muscle car exuding power or a luxury car selling that sleek curvy look?

From my perspective, the lines and curves of those great classic cars are an artistic opportunity. I try and shoot elements of the car to tell a story. With that being said, I have attached three separate shots in color and black and white. They both…
