Three Singularities

The images posted today are all individuals. Each has a unique look, palette and texture. They result from my ongoing exploration using Procreate app along with iColorama to create abstract compositions.


I would describe this as a digital version of a painterly collage. Paint-like tools in Procreate were used to make “brush strokes” and various textures. Over the background, some geometric areas were painted a solid color and then, using the erase tool, a woodcut texture was etched out.
Very different from the first image this one, also done in Procreate app, features flat areas of color using a very limited palette. The raised or embossed texture along the edges was generated in iColorama app.
In some ways this composition combines features of the first two. There is a painterly underlying texture running through the background as in the first. Geometric shapes are central to the design as in the second and finally, iColorama was used to add an embossed element.

  1. Very nice, Jeff. I find them all to be attractive, although the middle one looks pretty simple when compared to the other two. I understand that it’s not-I think it’s because it has a flat look about it.

    1. Thanks, Donna. Yes, by comparison the second one is simpler in appearance. For me the important thing is to try to create interesting and balanced compositions. Some have more complexity and/or texture but I always try to keep them interesting and balanced in the arrangement of their objects or elements. Glad you liked them.
