View Full Version : Flower Madness

This is one I made this morning from making a tutorial.
I used so many different tools, mostly the gloop, but mainly this is Peter's technique and all comes from the pleasant outcome of duplicating and changing effects.
All AR3 and loads of fun.
I will upload the tutorial as soon as I can. I didn't know how to make a screen shot so I exported as many steps as I could.

It was so hard to make a step by step thing, because I didn't know where I was going. Kind of like a drive on a beautiful day and you just want to drive and take a different road once in a while.:)

Thanks Valerie. I keep getting wrong file extension message, and I made each one a jpg. Oh I hope I can figure this out.:o

There's something that you are really exploiting well, Alexandra -- the repetition of shapes makes for an orderliness and unity.

Interesting color combination. I got an odd hit that this reminds me of non invasive open heart surgery if you can dig that contrast. If one is into color therapy and psychological reactions to different colors, this feels to me that the colors are so strong in relation to one another, and a little edgy, that it feels almost purposeful, though such things are often the results of intuition, and just sort of happen without seeming rhyme or reason. And yet on some level it communicates.

Okay, my two bit opinion is that it is like there is a Spiritual component in which there worldly flare ups, that rather than being damaging, are rather creating a bouquet. Life is a field of flowers sort of thing. Speaks to me of an extraordinary resilience.

Of course, that's my personal spin and reflects probably more about me as are most viewer's takes on Art. So it's in the ol' 'For What It's Worth' category.

I've been watching your paintings flow through, and alas I have not had a lot of time of late to comment. And all are fantastic in this floral direction you have taken to lately. This one is a little different. Also quite nice.

Keep up the great work, Alexandra!!!!

D Akey, you are a highly perceptive person. PM coming your way.
I sometimes will spend a good amount of time on the background after I have made the designs. I love geometrics, as I love to sew and make patterns. Yet, in art I don't want total perfection because I find that boring.
I love to work with colors that are different and not commonly used together, but don't clash. (In my view at least) My expression of freedom.
I really appreciate your comments, they are a tremendous encouragement to me.:)
