After much pondering, I’ve had difficulty coming up with a theme. And what’s emerged from my thought process is not really a theme, but I’d like something from nature in your abstract (whatever your interpretation of “nature“ is). It doesn’t have to be recognisable, but I’d like to know what it is in your explanation. :D

I went searching for a particular image from last year, but couldn’t find it. I stumbled on this one from August 2018. Not sure what I used I’m I guessing iColorama had a lot to do with it.

An old Dubble further wrecked in FotoDa, watercolour version & outline detail in BeCasso, saturation, frame and crop in SnapSee, different versions blended in Union.

’Something from nature’: he’s playing piano on the sand, facing the sea. I originally thought those coloured lines of light might be the Northern Lights - turns out they’re fireworks.

Love this!
now I look again, it’s a bit more of your type of palette, isn’t it?
(I told you I was studying your style. I’m doomed! I’ll be stealing your collages soon, and passing them off as my own aka Ann’s pigeonso_O)

Even when I try not to use that orange/red sort of thing, I wind up with it! I think it might be the difference blend mode I favor. :lmao:

I think so, too - that burned/inverted look is the way I recognise some of your collages from the thumbnails in the home feed.

This one would have had a bit of Difference somewhere along the line.
It started off with an oil brush in SketchClub** (1). I’m experimenting with making texture myself with by blending various shapes & colours into the starting bg (2) before further wrecking in Distressed or Formulas or Pixlr etc (3). Blending & masking various versions is fun and turns up interesting bits for other projects. Takes much longer to do what my favourite texture/filter apps do in seconds, but sometimes the noodling around is the whole point, right? :D

** for those not familiar SketchClub has endless layers, all the blending options - plus about a million ‘undo’s

And, (if everyone will excuse me taking over the thread :notworthy: ) these are the types of layers I like to make for masking or blending an image onto itself, sotospeak. My favourite method is to put a ‘strong contrasts’ version in the Mask layer on top of two random versions.
