Calm Me

Calm Me by Karissa Cole 2014

My mission was to create an image that I thought of as peaceful, calming. The base of this piece is a photo of a Rock Beach Gorge from Lee Orr’s stock collection on deviantART. It morphed considerably from there. The original size is 2250 x 3225. It looks much better and has a lot less distortion than this wee version I’ve noticed…

Infrequently do I attempt terrapsace style art. Over the past four years this is probably my third try. Naturally it’s not a well honed skill of mine, yet. This one ended up having a painterly kind of look, I think (not that that’s necessarily a bad thing). There are some parts of this picture that I think came out pretty good. And at least the idea is a good one, IMO :)

It looks quiet here. It looks like there would be no one around, and I could just sit in the sand or on a flat rock and watch the sky. That to me sounds infinitely peaceful.
