Very seldom I start making a picture from scratch, from nothing, except when I am drawing of course. I need something to start from. Something to manipulate. It can be a photograph, something I scanned, or an old collage, or what ever. Then I either start working on the chosen image or I mix it with another image to produce a new picture. This field is made out of two different photos merged together. Then I smeared the digital paint around to produce a, yes, smeared effect. The girl is from a russian propaganda painting. I guess I felt that the field felt a bit desolate.
