Recently I start experimenting with opalotype processing of pictures. I’m still in the experimental phase but, unexpectedly, there seems some demand for giclee prints. And there occurs a problem: first of all it’s difficult to find a printer in South Africa who can offer a consistent high quality. For the board and canvas prints I found one in Cape Town (and these guys are extreme good!!!). But there are not many giclée printers in South Africa. The ones I found via internet still have to respond to my email request for a quote ….

This gallery shows a few opalotype pictures of flowers (all trials!):

I love Japanese paintings and prints and should like to have an original at home. This morning, before the rain turned loose, I had my doggy walk with camera in hand and came across a bunch of ducks having their Sunday morning nap on some branches sticking out of the water. While processing the pictures I cropped one and with Japan in mind I started to play a bit with Photoshop. Not perfect but who is? Let’s stick to a Dutch/African interpretation of it.
