    Not Quite Ready For Prime Time

    Of late I've been spending several hours a day mucking about with AR, trying things out, muttering over them, then banishing them to electronic oblivion. The thought occurred to me that I might be better served by posting some of these less-than-stellar efforts along with a brief description of what I was trying to do.

    This was an exercise in abstract composition employing the rule of thirds. It didn't quite work.

    Docsmith626, I like your idea, and the action is difficult, but you did it, I strongly support your work.

    Interesting design Docsmith and I feel it was very well executed. Works like this are valuable to the artist whether you consider them a success or not. In fact, I believe I learn more from the unsuccessful ones (and there are many of them) than I do the so called successful ones. Great idea to post these instead of deleting them. You may get some feedback from others that can benefit you. Nicely done!

    Thanks, Sketch. Composition is presently one of my bugaboos. I know the rules, at least the short form, but getting them to work in practice is a bit more complicated. And when you toss in things like asymmetric balance . . . Whooo!

    This is an excellent abstract painting. Rich, colourful, harmonic, vibrant of energy!

    Less than stellar? Yeah if you mean 'smaller than'. . . How about 'molecular', old son.

    Like the stained glass in Notre Dame cathedral in Paris suddenly vaporized only to hang about in air trying to remember their original configuration.

    Pretty remarkable.

    Been putzing around with composition again. This time I started with a textbook geometric composition, then fractured it with the transform and select tools allowing some of the layer below show through. There may be some possibilities here.
