Abstract art is art that does not attempt to represent an accurate depiction of a visual reality but instead use shapes, colours, forms and gestural marks to achieve its effect (Tate)

Just for fun. And because She Who Must Be Obeyed suggested it. And because we will leave no stone unturned in our efforts to educate sinnerjohn John . . .

John is handing over an image for abstract-ification. That means you take his image and rework it into what you consider an abstract version. Any apps, any interpretation — you can do pretty much whatever you like to it, as long as John is able to detect in your version some passing resemblance somewhere to his original.

Please give some information about your thinking and your editing/apping.

In a week or so, John will choose one abstract-ified version to enlarge and hang on his wall. Or maybe he’ll just pick his favourites and make some nice comments.

:lol: Great idea - Abstractification! It’s not that the image needed improving, because, imho, it’s absolutely lovely as it is. But rather I wanted you, zenjenny Jen,to make one of your fabulous collages incorporating it. But now we all get a go, thanks to sinnerjohn John’s amazing generosity. Thank you John.:inlove:

I have to say I’m a bit concerned, Jilly — maybe he’s down the local, few sheets to the wind, feeling no pain, asitwere, and he’ll have forgotten tomorrow. He also liked an image in my 52 which is a wossname - what does he call them? Distorted women. You can see why I’m concerned :mobibabe:

Abstractification... o_O

What a great idea, it may even catch on... :whistle:

Nice one John sinnerjohn and well done Jennifer zenjenny for facilitating in your usual inimitable stylee... :notworthy:


I can't download the pic. It keeps downloading as a htm file. I'll try John's original post.

Edit.... Yes that works.
Sorted now, I think Riz... :D

I really L:hearteyes:VE John’s original, and it was fun to mash up. I ran it through decim8, then took that into Diptic and used one of the funky shapes... adding different filters to each section. Then brought it into Pixlr for some texture and the geometric lines. It feels like a wild patchwork quilt to me...

Boxing bunnies from space
(is what you get when you mess John's image around in iColorama for a long time and then stumble upon the Mirror tool)

Agh! You beat me to it Ted. I was reading a magazine yesterday and saw a mirror image of something (can’t remember what) and I had a lightbulb moment. But I didn’t put it in the socket and turn it on quick enough (I know, that’s enough of that analogy).:lol: This is great. You’re lucky that you found your way out of iColorama. People get lost in there for years.

Catherine’s use of Diptic reminded me that I had it.:thumbs:

I went all 60s drug-fuelled psychedelia. I thought that might appeal to John.:lmao:
Diptic and iColorama

EDIT: Then I vaguely remembered some band or other (or it could have been a song:confused:) and thought “Album Cover”!:lol:
