"PaperArtsy", theme "Abstract Art"
and linking the abstract carrot to
"Art Journal Journey" where the theme is "Inspired by Autumn Colours".
I started with this "painting" which was a couple of months in the making as it is half of the A3 under-paper I use to test paint colours, stamps etc.
I played with it using photo-editing only, no additional painting (except for one fishy eye).
This came from the bottom right.
Playing with crops, colour changes and filters.
I seriously like the creature with the hairnet and I had to give the orange fellow an eye.
You can see Mr Hairnet at the top of the original page.
The eye was the only "painterly" change I made to the shapes.
Gave the page a bit of a whirl, and a crop.
This is undoubtedly an abstract carrot waiting for an abstract bus.
And look who appeared next. In fact if you look back at the start he was there all the time, left of the middle, hiding.
Is it still an abstract if a ghost monster walks into it?
Isn't it amazing what can come from your scrappy underpaper?
