I have been working on some art in Collaboration with Photographer Gabriel Olude. Using his model shoots (20 eventually) to create art I see with each photo. I am a talk to me type person and looking at the photos I go with the one that gets me going first.
The first image that I used was of a model where the image just said strength, strong, powerful. So I did something that I felt said that..
This is a modern strong confident woman, who sparkle in light, who stand in front of a cat protecting it as much as it does her, she demands respect and the maze indicates that you will have to work hard and earn your way to her heart. The map of Africa is not only her home but some say the heart of the world…
Secondly this image – It said – MYSTIQUE – and I wanted to do impressionism/abstract, which I did not really pull off, but this is the result…
Third and last for this set, I wanted abstract again with a model in the rainy streets..”DELIGHT” – Barefoot in the rain.
This was so much fun, I decided late last night to do another unrelated but similar style image called “Dejected”.
I even went as far as doing a room mock-up to see the result in a room.

You have done a great job with them, Adriaan. I particularly liked ‘Delight’ and ‘Dejected’. Well done. 🙂
Thanks. Good learning opportunities.
Wow. Absolutely stunning. Dejected emphasises just that. Amazing.
lovely work Adriaan! Barefoot in the rain and Dejected are stunning indeed, just as the first one!
Did you paint them or digitally create these pieces of art? Really love the feel of it!
All digital…first painted digitally, others with layers in Photoshop, fine art style…
Wonderful job 🙂
Wonderful work Adrian! My favorites are Delight, and Dejected.
Your mock up room looks fab!
I like this exploration.
These are beautiful
LOVE your work here Adrian – brilliant creativity. Awesome ~
Thanks Mary, to kind.
These are wonderful and remind me a bit of a media shot I used for a blog post last year during safari – this is a link https://suemtravels.com/2016/02/15/darmara-nama-herero-himba-and-san-bushman/. It has the same kind of beautiful lighting. None of my photos from inside their dark homes turned out and I found this one online.
Lots of natural layers and interest.
Very nice work. The colouring in ‘Dejected’ is lovely and the whole work looks great against the grey wall.
Thanks, fun to see things from other perspectives.
wonderful pieces, this is a fun challenge with Gabriel is it not? I must do a post with some of mine soon, too
Yeah, for sure. Bring new people together too.
Amazing work.Well done .That’s art.
Love these, Adrian!
