Textured Abstracts

I have added something new to my digital arsenal. iColorama is a photo editing app for iPad but it is much, much more than just that. There are hundreds of tools for altering the color, light and every other property of a photo or original digital art image. In addition, there are many filters for digitally altering the surface of a composition and unlimited ways to distort and reconfigure an image. I found that if I create a composition in Procreate app then bring it into iColorama I can add new textures to it while keeping the overall composition intact. For me this is very exciting because it expands the range of visual expression many times over. In these new abstracts I have been able to add three-dimensional surface textures to the drawings that were not available to me before. I’ve been working with iColorama for only two days but, as with Procreate, the possibilities are literally endless so you may be seeing some very different looking images in the near future…wish me luck!

  1. Now they are three-dimensional, which is really interesting. I am loving seeing you have so much fun with these. The weather is looking good for this week. Can’t wait to see you both on Tuesday!!

    1. Yes, the weather looks good and we are very excited to see you and Spyro and your new paintings. Of course a wonderful dinner together will be an added treat. As you say, I’m having “so much fun” I’m bursting. It feels very good especially with winter always there to gnaw at one’s energy and creative instincts. I’m very heartened that you are finding my abstracts of interest. It gives me a real boost!
