Continued Explorations

Using a new digital drawing, I have continued to delve into the possibilities of creating variations in iColorama for iPad. The original design was done in Procreate app using an Apple pencil. I wanted to construct a design that had two main characteristics, flat areas of solid color and lightly textured background shapes. From my previous experience of iColorama, I found that the app seemed to handle flat and textured areas differently in its various configurations. That was the starting point of this experiment. The results show that, in iColorama, there are just too many variables in each separate altering mode to be able to easily predict what changes may occur. Below are several of the modifications of the original design. Some are affected only with a change in surface texture. Others show radical changes of color and or texture. The possibilities for variation are infinite.

I feel like a kid with a new kaleidoscope when working in iColorama. Every time I put something into it and play with the settings, unexpected delights keep occurring. So … the journey continues with no end in sight. I hope you are enjoying it as much as I am.

    1. Thanks Donna. I think the textured ones do add another layer of interest. It’s really amazing that all of these changes can be made in one app. More to come.
