The three abstractions I’m posting today all use different color palettes. All three were created in Procreate for iPad and enhanced in iColorama app and Photoshop Elements for Mac.
The first uses one of my photos taken of a cloister wall at the monastery of St. Paul de Mausole in St. Rémy, France. This was the sanatorium where Van Gogh stayed and painted some of his last and most famous paintings including Starry Night. I used this photo to provide a semi abstract background for the layered objects in the composition. The palette consists of warm reds, oranges and yellows with touches of green and blue for contrast.
The next abstract uses a strikingly more analogous palette of greens, yellows and blues. The composition contains more arcs and rounded objects arranged to imply motion.
The last composition incorporates a palette that I rarely use, predominantly of blues and purples. As in the mainly green image above, I tried to create motion by using curves against more static objects.
