Same Subject Different Styles – via Artist Kirt Tisdale 🎨

This week I have chosen to do something that compares different styles of “painting” or presentation on the same subject matter….each creating a totally different look. I would also like to preface that it’s ok to like certain styles of “painting” and/or really not like certain styles. Art is in the eye of the beholder…

My previous reblog post featuring Kirt Tisdale, photographer & graphic artist, “ Lighting Changes – Sailboats on San Diego Bay” – featured variations of light in the course of one day on San Diego Bay, California.

This time around, Kirt does an amazing job of presenting five creative choices in four differing digital styles and two differing cropping choices of one basic image!

I had two very different results he achieved I really liked, and posted one of them at top.

Your fun opportunity is checking them out and seeing what appeals to you! 😊

It’s extra amazing to then also realize (or remember, if one does digital work) that, in addition to creating such engaging variations, Kirt obviously did not just click a convert button, but made lots of conscious (intuitive, experimental or otherwise) creative choices!

  • Color densities / saturations
  • Art styles
  • Border edges
  • Highlights / shadows
  • Burning & dodging

And probably half a dozen other digital choices I didn’t think of, lol!

I hope you’ll take a look & enjoy the – literally – obvious joy of creativity ❤️

Thanks everyone!
