I thought I’d share some recent fractal creations with you today. It seems this time of year I’m drawn to bright colors as I wait impatiently for springtime. This year has been no exception, although this first piece only has a hint of spring color!
I’ve also gotten into a routine where I create three of these images at a setting. Seems like after the third my brain has had enough!
These images build, one to the next, with added layers, effects and closer details. Sometimes you can see the growth but often they end up looking totally different from their sources. I like that each is unique and stands on it’s own.
Do you have habits and routines in your creativity?
I’ve been enjoying the process of drawing, shading & coloring artwork on paper lately. This is another newly finished piece in that genre!
I used some of the “marbled” paper from the shaving cream explorations as a background and began adding designs on top of that. From there it was just pattern after pattern, followed by color and more color!
As you can tell I originally planned for it to be a horizontal image but once it was complete I ended up prefering it vertical. Of course I can’t complain very much about the time & hard work on this one as I did most of it while relaxing on a short get-away trip.
Something about making art by the pool is even more satisfying than making it in the studio!
I had the images processed at Star Photo in Anderson, Indiana. It was fun to brainstorming with Chuck and come up with some creative ways to display my work. He took this photo of them prior to sending them to me:
As great as they look here, they look even better in person! Stop in the gallery and view them, they’ll only be there two more weeks – don’t miss it. 🙂
