Design with me… #6

The days pass by… one like the other. Yesterday I was kind of bored 😑. So I sat down, took my iPad and started to create some graphic designs. Hope you like some. Today things are getting better. Stunning weather forecast for the next days.

That means more „Walking my dog“ posts 😱

Happy days. Reinhold & 🐶

Autumn is at its peak in the moment. I captured this yellow/orange tree in sunset light in the woodlands around our lake. I transferred it into a burning tree using the oil paint filter (once again).

Happy days. Reinhold

Calendar 2019

Preselection Berlin Calendar 2019

I am currently creating my Berlin 2019 calendar. This is my first preselection. I am using a square format. So it doesn’t matter if the images are in square, portrait or landscape format. Only the position of the “calendar” has to be adjusted. I have already used this for my Landscape 2019 calendar.

It is called “Moorland”. The proof version of “Moorland” is on its way to a printer.
Both calendars will be in English and available for pre-order starting in November 2018. The will be produced in 40×40 cm size using fine art paper. It is easy to cut out these images and use them as images to be framed.

I have just finished a special version of a “Landscape” calendar. I have combined images of products of a local company and my landscape images into a final composition. This was a very challenging and time consuming job. The image had to fit to the season (month) and to the product. And the integration shouldn’t “ruin” the image.
This sample shows a “filter” swimming in the water creating some interest for the gulls.

Hope to get all 3 calendars ready / printed soon.

Happy days. Reinhold

Wouldn’t it be awesome if one could paint an image like this?
I captured the underlying image in Amsterdam and stumbled upon it today while I was cleaning up my files. Always nice to go back to these older images and to play around with them.

Happy days.

In 2018 I would like to write about my workflow / my creative space. All of my camera gear and technical equipment is displayed above.  The top 3 items are: glasses, tea and orange juice. First subject will be: my WACOM tablet. Why and how I use it, why it broke and how I fixed it. Happy days. Reinhold
