Those of us who grew up before the digital era learned to “tell time” from the numbers on a round clock face. Behind the face rested the inner mechanical gears and springs of the clockworks, a complicated invention that for centuries has provided a universal fascination. These fanciful abstracted versions of clockworks might be at home in the land of Oz, Harry Potter’s Hogwarts or some other fantastical place. They were created in Procreate app for iPad with a wink and a nod towards Wassily Kandinsky.
All three of these digital abstracts share the same “pastel” color palette. They are composed of multiple layers of color with some overlap and transparency. Another common attribute is the texture and colors of the background layers. The backgrounds were created with a “brush” that simulates the surface of canvas. They were created in Procreate app for iPad using an Apple pencil.
