From the UK to the US Initiative
The UK to US initiative is a collaboration of Photography from Artists Greg Towning of Topsham England & TPowers Atlanta Georgia. The images are then melded together and digitally altered to create a Surrealist quality and new image. These images will be sold and featured in both the United States and the United Kingdom. You will get the opportunity to follow the initiative here on GrafXQuest.com. A little known fact. Each of the images will have a duck hidden somewhere in the photos. How did this come about? In the very first photo melded together Greg said that he thought he saw a giant duck in the image. The "DUCK" was actually a boat in the water within his original image that looks somewhat like a duck. Greg then jokingly said that we should include a duck in every image to make it our thing. And there you have it. Every image of the UK/US initiative will contain a duck hidden somewhere in the photo. They are not always obvious so look hard.
The photo above was melded together using two photos, digital grunge paper, and digital manipulation. The grunge paper was used to give a raining effect seen to the left of the large tree. The smoke effect was done by combining airbrushing and a smudge tool in Corel.
