On my HARRY BORGMAN ART BLOG I am posting the illustration and graphic design work that I have produced through the years. Here I will concentrate on my experimental art. This group of work consists primarily of digital art but some of my paintings will also be included. I have done a lot of experiments with photography, collages as well as photomontages. The computer medium is especially suited for this type of work.
These experiments are all based on high contrast black and white photos like the above image where I have only added bands of color to create a strong design.
On this image I have added some gray tones to a few of the trees as well as some bright areas in the background to indicate sunlight.
By just adding simple color areas to these four photos I have created interesting designs.
Another dramatic design using only three colors using the white areas as a strong design element.
Using unusual color combinations can be quite effective. With the computer you can easily do several versions of the same scene until you are satisfied with your design.
Even adding a simple element such as a square or rectangle can quite effective.
Here is a poster that I did using only four flat colors.
Another simple poster design using few colors on which I added the snow. Working with high contrast photos is a great way to practice and develop your color and design skills.
