A Glimpse of My Fisheye World on Canvass

I have a good idea on how to give colour to my boring room. It is by making artworks. I am onto my second piece when I thought of transforming my Lomographic photo into another form of art, a painting. I wanted to incorporate my love for lomography into other things as well.

The process started on which photo I would choose to paint. I came across several photos but one photo captured the great and simple view of my world. Since I have been loving my Fisheye 2 camera, I thought of searching through its folder. I have been shooting a few rolls and I got good results each time.

I came across my second time of use of the Fisheye 2 camera (borrowed from Skypos ) loaded with Velvia 100 slide film. The roll was taken from Ninoy Aquino Parks and Wildlife in Quezon City Philippines during our group’s picnic shoot.

I was amazed that even though there were light leaks, those photos were not that ruined but instead, it still looked nice.

This photo left me astonished up until now. I came to wonder about my world in a Fisheye view through this. A house, people, and shades of blue, purple, red and silhouettes may sum it all up.

I prepared the materials needed, acrylic for my base, oil paint, paint brushes, easel, canvass (9×12) and some confidence and will to paint. I finished it within a week with less procrastination. Throughout making my painting #2, I learned how to mix more colors, be more imaginative on how to execute each object and be patient for the paint to dry.

Hopefully my next project is to paint another Lomographic photo again but this time I will use a bigger canvass.

Special thanks to Walasiteodito for inspiring me to paint.
