Operan III

Uncategorized

The first Operan is about 120×100 cm and as I was enjoing working on this large scale I did a couple more and found another photograph from the Stockholm archipelago that inspired me. Looking at this image it is almost too colourful – but I have not made any ‘improvements’ – it is the way light is falling on the microscopic pigment particles and the way they are reflecting the light that make it so vibrant. Photographing this using my phone was a challenge – either the light was bouncing off the surface or, as here, the colours look exaggerated and fake.
