I Ching 09 -Xiao chu (Small Taming) by annewipf I Ching 09 -Xiao chu (Small Taming) by annewipf
The watermark doesn't appear on the prints.

This picture belongs to a series of 64 landscapes inspired by the 64 hexagrams of the I Ching (Yi King), the Chinese oracle book. I hope you'll like my interpretation.

Words which inspired me: clouds getting thicker, field, path, broken wheel, end of summer.

Stock used:

by :iconsixwings: and by :iconfoxstox:

The other stock pictures come from my own photos: and the left part of the wall.

Brushes: [link] by :iconfrostbo: and [link] by :iconmidnightstouch:

Thanks to everybody.

First off, no way I, a non-professional, can tell this is created from a collage of other photos. Which says great things about your abilities and techniques!

The scene is a good one for your "end of summer" theme. Clever to make use of what seems to be old farm equipment along side the ramshackle wall.

I do want to say something on the lighting. The field is well lit up, as is the foreground, yet the clouds are dark and almost menacing. They are good for the mood, yet at odds, I think, for the amount of light and sharpness of the rest of the picture. Something about the flock of birds, too, feels a mit odd...but I can't say why.
What do you think?

Quand je tape, j'en fais autant. C'est dû pour ma part, je pense, au passage des anciennes machines à écrire (et oui, je suis assez vieille pour ça: y compris pour les très vieilles machines mécaniques, celles qui avaient des trous entre les touches où les doigts avaient tendance à se coincer et dont il fallait pousser le chariot), aux touches plutôt dures, aux claviers modernes qu'on effleure à peine: d'où tendance à aller trop vite!

Nostalgie, je me souviens encore de mon bref passage dans un "pool dactylo": une pièce avec une vingtaine de dactylos aux machines bruyantes (il aurait fallu porter un casque!) payées à la tâche! J'ai détesté et ne suis pas restée: à l'époque, ce n'était pas un souci, on retrouvait du boulot de suite (c'était dans les années 70)...

Je suis assez âgée pour avoir connu les vieilles machines à écrire, avec les rubans à changer, qui laissaient de "superbes" traces d'encre quasi indélébiles sur les doigts...

ça avait cependant son charme. :p
