The abstract compositions in today’s post all have similar elements, a shared pastel palette of colors, textured background, geometric objects and straight and jagged lines. They are all variations on an angular theme created in Procreate app for iPad using various “brushes” (drawing tools) on multiple transparent layers. Later in the post I’ll explain one of the techniques used to create them.
An interesting technique
One of my favorite techniques working in Procreate is to use tools in an eraser mode. There are many drawing tools available in this app and they can all be used in an opaque (normal) mode or as an eraser. I sometimes make an object in the opaque mode and alter it by using the same or other tools in the “eraser” mode. In all three of the abstracts above, the blue “balloon” circles were created this way.
Here’s a triptych of all three above abstractions
