HEADING TO STURGIS
This is an image I created with the one in the header. It started out with the truck, a gift from Dave Mann, a renowned artist.
I shot it on a board in my field, then cut it out & pasted it onto a longer canvas for the header shot. I took an old pen stand where the pen would hang magnetically under the light part of the lamp standard. The bridge rails I made by shooting some stailess steel mesh, I have around for getting a star effect in photography. I created the light spray on another canvas & copyed & pasted them into this image. A reflection of light off the fast moving water was done by splashing three or four different paint colors & using a blurring motion filter to smooth & haze the water. I also blurred the wheels very slightly with a circular motion filter. This is a model of one of the actual Easy Rider rigs. This one is about 14 inches long. This image is done in 17 different layers then flattened & sized for inclusion in this post. If you have any questions on any aspect of the image or any questions involving whatever you want to question me about I will do my best to be truthful.
Remember, a day of rest is always best.
