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)

April is coming: Hola Verano! ;)

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.

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.

Just change April to late May/early June.

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.

I love this.
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.
