“Colors of Abstract”

Tonight’s post is going to be a quick one. I haven’t had much of a chance to get out and do anything outdoors recently with the weather we’ve been having this winter, plus I am still processing tons of last years images.

Several days ago after seeing some beautiful oil and water macro images done by Beverly Everson, I decided to do some messing around with it myself. Here is the link to Beverly’s initial image that inspired me, which is very beautiful!: http://www.eversonphotography.com/2014/02/oil-and-water/

I was lacking in some of the essential items, but I decided to do it anyway. I came out with this and a bevy of other abstracts. None of them were quite what I had hoped, but they have a beauty of their own.

I wanted to get this one up for those people who had requested it, and for those that are also messing around with oil and water too.

I’ll be doing more of these in the future, but first I need to find some very good glass baking dishes, not the ones I bake brownies in! 😉

  1. Rachel it must be in the air as i too have been experimenting with oil and water this month http://fineartamerica.com/featured/abstract-blue-karen-lawrence.html
    I had a heck of a time finding a glass dish without any writing on the bottom, even the budget dishes had marks. I also think i need to experiment more, i used a vegetable oil and found i got lots of very small bubbles so will try a different oil next time. It will be interesting to see what we can achieve.
    Just how hard is it to focus on those bubbles! 🙂 and getting the lighting right, did you experiment with how close your dish was to the paper, i think i will do that next time too. I look forward to your next posting, good luck.
