    4-Square

    another exploration into a direction I tried with Tilt and Shift. taking a painterly abstract and apply transformations and blending layers to build it into a more geometric pattern.. I hope you enjoy this exploration..AndreaMG any chance you might find a source image? No pressure but it would be fun to see if you can.. and Steve you are welcome to let your imagination flow freely with this. It does have lots of details so look different in a separate window enlarged..

    Well well Dear Gary, while sleeping I had a vision and I felt kinda stupid not coming up with it sooner , it is undoubtedly a masterful depiction of the sky seen by a sailor man through a ship hatch (and shrouds too ), but that's no ordinary sky and that's not an ordinary ship Dear Gary: the sky you so cleverly painted is the one you find only at certain latitudes where night and day cohabit (hence the deep blue which represents the night while the yellow the sun). Those blocky shapes in the background are a genius touch, I give you that, since you're an abstract painter you did't use an ordinary ship as reference but a pirate lego ship (too bad I found out even this little secret of yours ). Till the next challenge I guess . Regards

    Hahahahaha, great to see you both still playing your game. Has a wonderful textured look in full size! Great! ( not the lego ship )

    AH HA! you found me out ! you must have surveillance on me!! , I was aboard the very ship and made this sketch as we sailed the mid 40's, not much wind but the sea and skies were beautiful shades of blue..

    I know AndreaMG is quite clever and witty with his source images... it is real fun for me and I hope others on the forum..

    thanks DAkey glad you like the experimental bent. I decided that it is Transformational art. that is taking a painting/image and transforming into its own existence much like origami transforms a sheet of paper..

    It's captivating in any sense. A pleasure of geometry and colors as well as a cage, a jail window, to keep You in with its attractiveness and solid rods and bars.
