I used the base from a previous abstract which I’d actually saved, something I rarely do.
There are numerous filters, a couple of Blending Mode changes, Fractalius and a little bit of painting. As it was nearing the end, I could see what could, if you stretched your imagination, be called an insect! All up, I think there are about 25 – 30 layers in this one, a huge number for me! It’s a little bit darker than I want but I can’t lighten it without destroying it.
I wish I could draw or paint, I now have an idea for an imaginary insect, a fantastical one, but it would still be an abstract. Oh well, it’ll stay in my imagination until it fades.
Many thanks for looking. All comments are much appreciated.
