Dot dot

Sparkle, shine, glitter

I was playing with one of my phone picture editing apps and came across something that pixelates in dots not squares.

I turned it into a black and white image, then added colours with a flood fill option in another app. sketch-1558111779786

I did more to it by using my phone editing suite. I went to the curves section which allows you to adjust the colours and brightness and adjusted it to make it more interesting.

I’ve ended up with a dotty abstract.

Purple

Bright purple, showy, flared.

Full of energy,

Life, fun.

Zing-ING, splashed, clamouring

For attention.

Add purple and it blasts through,

Flights of fancy

High pitched song,

Not calm pink

Or barmy blue

Gaudy yellow

Green screen

Orange spice

Ruddy red.

But purple, violet, lavender, plum, grape

Mix blue, red and white

Purple delight

Idea for a quilt

 

Just playing with the abstract pictures I drew, making a butterfly pattern then duplicating it, adding borders as if each piece was sewn together. I think I could make something out of this using cut pieces of patterned cloth using the butterfly as a template. I’m not sure about the colours as it gets mixed into the pattern. I wondered if I added some black to the background.

I sort of like the more random feel to this. At least I am being creative.

Swirls

When I have had a long day I enjoy doing something creative. These were done with a couple of apps, sketcher free and picsart.  I don’t know why I like swirls and spirals so much.

Anyway here are three iterations. The first was the most complex to create, the second and third led to the first. I started with bright colours and then reduced them by using the curves option, changing each colour to a more muted one and eventually grey.

I think I will just finish here. Today was very busy.

One line drawings.

 

When I used to draw at Youdraw.com I would do one line drawings. Basically you kept your cursor moving on the drawing area and didn’t lift it until you finished… Thats what I’ve done here … But then duplicated it and flood filled it. Sometimes it’s nice to lose black lines.

I’m having a makeover on social media. I’m now @mallabandbrown on twitter… I will be using it more to post about paintings and other exploratory art that I’m planning over the next few months .
