I was recently introduced to some work by artist Andrea Kemler. Her work is stunning, so colorful and beautifully composed. The most amazing thing about it is it's all done with a large format scanner. A scanner is essentially a camera sitting tabletop. I'm not sure how she gets the vibrant colors she does, although I'm sure it has something to do with the quality of the equipment she is using.
Some of her images are strictly pieces she composed by laying the materials directly on the scanner. She also composes pieces digitally by layering her scanned images. I am in awe of it really.
I thought I would take a stab at it using my rinky dink scanner at home. I really had some fun with this. I started just with an idea about textures and went from there.
