    Super start Rodolfo, AND it fits in beautifully with the “theme”.

    I really liked deepop's abstract from Microsoft Pix in the last round, so I wanted to try it myself. I created Pix versions of two different photos and then layered them in Leonardo using different blend modes.

    Way to go! Love all of the colours. Yes, I loved deepop David’s creations too. I’ve not heard of Pix, or rather I hadn’t until the last challenge.

    Wow, gorgeous abstracts already AND a cool theme and I haven’t even seen the results. Comes with living in the other half of the world !

    If I can stay awake long enough I’ll see what Starzee says (I’ll wonder about my notifications later)

    To what purpose, April, do you return again?
    Beauty is not enough.
    You can no longer quiet me with the redness
    Of little leaves opening stickily.
    I know what I know.
    The sun is hot on my neck as I observe
    The spikes of the crocus.
    The smell of the earth is good.
    It is apparent that there is no death.
    But what does that signify?
    Not only under ground are the brains of men
    Eaten by maggots.
    Life in itself
    Is nothing,
    An empty cup, a flight of uncarpeted stairs.
    It is not enough that yearly, down this hill,
    April
    Comes like an idiot, babbling and strewing flowers.

    (Spring: Edna St Vincent Millay)

    I decided I would try random transformations made to a random selection of images then put them all on layers and play with the blending modes to see what would happen.

    I made plenty of images but for the most part I found the source images were not yet sufficiently reduced to do what I wanted.

    I’m sometimes fond of this type of abstract.
    46E7FA6C-F4DC-4F18-A037-CD02AA318A45.jpeg
    It isn’t manipulated after photographing. There is a partial inversion of some tones using a live effect in ameraC.

    I really like abstracts with a feeling of depth or 3D. It strikes me that a lot of the early abstract art was quite “flat”, not just that they were painted on a flat surface but they look flat, or 2D.

    Escher made abstract art appear 3D. Procreate & ameraC.

    This is stuff just to the right of my keyboard at my computer desk. The red is the outer edge of my mousepad. The black is the mousing surface. The grey thing on the right is my Wacom drawing tablet. But the white part between the drawing tablet and the mouse pad is the shadow of the tablet - an inversion. The green part to the left of the red is the warm coloured wood grain of my keyboard drawer - so that part turned green. The red and black didn’t change at all. It’s a very unusual inversion, working so selectively, and it often produces interesting results.

    And I love your image :inlove: Wow. Do tell...? (No trade secrets here, out with it. I must warn you, though - dscheff ’ method of ‘capturing paint and other splatters on the props room floor’ will be hard to top :mobibabe: )

    I love these bold colourful strokes - especially the first two.

    And like JillyG id never hear of Pix until David mentioned it. But I don’t see it in the Au App Store :(

    I rather like ‘found abstracts’, too. Amazing what a few textures and a couple of strong lines can do.
