Synthetic landscape- found object art

A photoshop fabrication from scratch.... no photos, only scanned objects... this one was a complicated experiment. Grass blades were individually scanned on the scanner surface and layered upon one another, altered and blurred to create depth... I painted the sky with a brush same goes for the rainshower off in the distance and the dirt in the grass.... The water was a layered collage with a bunch of scanned maple leaves, a piece of dupont corian scanned in and used as a underneath layer, and I scanned a transparent plastic bag and layered it on to give a reflective surface. These things arent specifically planned out this way, they just evolved..... I like the organic feel of experimental collaging and just trying stuff.... looks less "planned" that way.

This thing was originally just an experiment to see if I could build depth with layering techniques in photoshop.

have you added to this lately? I seem to remember it just being of the leaves and water. It looks great Tim.

It was originally two different pieces... one just the grass landscape layer experiment... the other was a separate work of just leaves in the "water".... that one ended going in a different direction to a more abstract piece... I worked these two pieces together and messed with some things to create a single bg. I like keeping a variety of works in progress on the computer... sometimes these things just keep evolving with no specifics in mind...
