Abstract Art

Let’s get the sob story out first…. on my poor knee …. I can hardly walk with it at times…  (Now that is quite enough attention-seeking from you young old lady).  Anyway due to this knee we’ve not been out since we got back from Scotland a couple of weeks ago… and so I am rather lacking photographs to publish.

So I thought I would try my hand at abstract art….

This piece of abstract art was created by using a night photography shot of Canary Wharf.

I love the vibrant colours that the twirling effect created… and as one step further I also turned the photograph into monochrome.

I also twirled a black and white image of Boats on Loch Leven… and added a midnight blue tone to the photograph.

I am thoroughly enjoying creating artwork like this… and it is very therapeutic… which is a bonus.  Plus I have the added bonus of playing around with all the filters of Photoshop and Adjustment Layers.. believe me it is a great way to learn Photoshop.

After watching a couple of videos on YouTube about abstract art… I found this site, called Brush King which has Abstract Brushes you can download…   So with a few brushes downloaded off I set to create my first original piece of artwork… which doesn’t involve using a photograph….

So until my knee gets better and I can get around a whole lot easier than I can with this dodgy knee… I will have to keep myself content with creating Abstract Art…
