A New Triptych

At this trying time I send my very best wishes and hope for everyone’s safety and well being. With the threat of the coronavirus we all are having to alter our normal lives. Here in Danville we have cancelled all life drawing sessions for the foreseeable future so I will not be posting many life drawings for a while. I hope to do some figure drawing from online photos and videos and will post some of those when I can. I will continue to create digital abstractions using Procreate app and those I hope to post regularly.

A new triptych is my latest effort with Procreate. I had done a couple of triptychs previously in a paraphrase of Kandinsky’s imagery. This new group of three compositions differs from those both in style and dimensions. For these I used a square format and a very warm palette. All three have similar elements and colors. In a sense they are all variations on a theme. I often add texture to a finished Procreate composition by running it through iColorama app. For these three I did a single layer of color in Procreate and textured that layer in iColorama before composing the designs. The textured backgrounds of all three are the same although I tilted them in different directions for variety.

Here are three possible arrangements of the three images.
