Circles and Stripes

After spending several weeks reflecting on Kandinsky’s symbols and compositional approach, I’m returning to my more typical method of composing abstractions. Although the current palette is similar to the recent “Kandinsky” pieces, all three of these “revolve” around circles and stripes (line work) as subject matter. Curving shapes of analogous colors were added in layers to give motion to the compositions. All were done with Procreate app using an iPad and Apple Pencil. The background layers were altered in iColorama app adding stippled or pitted surface textures for more visual interest.
