– THE TWILIGHT SAD –

Today I am sharing with you my project and artwork a new Digital Portrait!

This time I am starting a new Collection of Portraits dedicated to the world of  “MUSIC” and Artists. I loved to create this portrait very much,  because is inspired and dedicated to my favorite nowadays band from Scotland “The Twilight Sad” and to their great and unique music. This year The Twilight Sad had an amazing and successful North American Tour as the opening band chosen by the iconic “The Cure” for this full-fledged 2016 World Tour together. In October they will be back on stage with The Cure Touring around Europe for the final dates of the Tour.  I attended one of the fantastic concerts last May. I have seen them in Los Angeles at The Hollywood Bowl in one of the three sold out shows, it was an amazing and wonderful concert that I never wanted to miss. If you haven’t you can read my detailed Blog Post here.

Details about my Digital Portrait

For this portrait I loved to use the beautiful photos of International Live Music Photographer, “Mauro Melis”, his work is stunning! He had the opportunity to photograph many amazing bands during the years, creating beautiful memories throughout his photography. And I am honored that he let me use his photos for create my artwork this digital portrait. I used three images of The Twilight Sad performing during two dates of the North American Tour. These below are the original photos I used before my digital intervention and creation.

I love to create these ethereal digital Portraits. They  are  my evolving  idea and concept to combining images and telling a story in the form of Visual-Art. Each photo has a meaning behind it and tell the Portrait story. During my creative process I am very selective of which photo I use and I spend lots of time researching for the right ones, with the right tones of colors, right  lighting and more details to look at it. This portrait is create with three photos but in my experience during my artistic journey I have made images with 10 and more photos. The process of creating is complex and introspective there is a lots of work and lots of myself in each final image.   I am happy the way this portrait turned out and I plan to create more of them for the Music Collection. For now The Twilight Sad are my shining stars on this special portrait!

I hope that you like my Digital Art and that you will share your impressions on this portrait!
A special thanks goes to The Twilight Sad with my best wishes for their European Tour dates and a great thank you to Mauro Melis for his stunning photography and his kindness to me.

This Is My War

I loved to read this post from my friend James Radcliffe …I am sure that every artist and creative can relate to it ! Have a wonderful day! ❤

I am smack-bang in the middle of the hardest part of my current project.

No longer the fresh excitement and boundless possibilities of the new, nor yet the fragrant and tantalising promise of completion, just the work; the seemingly endless and repetitive no-mans-land of the daily grind.

But still everyday I get up, brew my coffee, and get after it.

This post is about why.

“WHEN NATURE MEETS HUMANS”
Digital Portraits Collection

Portrait #6
– EWIAN –

Today I am sharing with you my New Portrait for this unique Digital Art Collection “When Nature Meets Humans” created out of digital photo-manipulation, each portrait is a blend of multiple photos representing nature and persons. I started to develop this concept about two months ago and since then I created  five unique portraits.

This is Portrait #6 – EWIAN

Last week Ewian was the Featured on my “Weekly Featured Blogs Event” taking place every Saturday, if you missed the post you can see it here.
Ewian is a great music composer from Germany and his beautiful music and videos, inspired me on creating my new Portrait for this unique Collection. A black and white portrait in connection and symbiosis, reflecting  Ewian style and Alternative Post-Rock music.
I used some of the great photos found on EWIAN Blog blended with photos of the “Black Forest” located in Germany. This beautiful forest rapresent the nature greately.
I like to experiment and continually evolve with my Art and creativity. From years I love to work in digital searching and testing new ways of visualization. I love Photography and like to work with photos, manipulating images and transforming them with my personal artistic touch. You can see the other 5 Portraits in a Gallery here.

I love this idea to mix nature with humans and create some unique and very different kinds of portraits…This Collection is created mostly for my own Artistic purpose and to share with you some of my digital abilities.

Talking about Photography….

0ften I get questions about my jewelry photographs. What inspire me to showcase my creations the way I do.  As you can see from some of the photos posted from the beginning of this Blog  I love photography! Yes I really do!  I love that I can catch the moment and it will stay forever with a beautiful photo.  That alone it is very inspiring to me. Awakening  that instinctive creativity guided from my inner soul to get a great shot. I consider Photography another great Artistic way of expression and I love to use photos for my Digital Art. In Photography I am an “Amateur” if I can say that 🙂 ❤
I love to stage and take all the photos for my Jewelry Design you can see them in the gallery  Jewelry Portfolio. Each photo is inspired by  the moment, by the Jewel itself and by the story behind my creation. When I stage a photo I love to add natural elements like stones, leaves, fossils, flowers. I take all the photos without flash. I like the natural light, some photos are staged outdoors and some indoor.  When I am outdoor I wait that the sun go almost down like a pre-sunset light, or I wait for some cloudy days for a more soft light. I just love the whole creative process and I hope that you enjoy all my photos!
