I don't think so Batman, because I like nr 3 the most, that doesn't mean I don't like the other ones. ;)
For me, nr 5 are beautiful poppies.

this is now a great opportunity for you to analyze why everybody likes no 3 the most so you can repeat the success recipe  O0

Hmm, might need to change "Let me know what you think" to "Let me know what you do and don't like about this one..."
Or I get a psychology come mind-reading/osmosis machine... I wonder if they are going cheap on ebay. :2funny: :2funny: :2funny:

Dunno why but that one really popped as a photo too. I'm guessing it's the reds and pinks with the complementary greens and yellows.

no 1 has these complementary colours too, and that's great.
But for me, it's the composition too, and the fact that my brain caught something 'recognisable' very quick, as a leaf, falling down, almost at 1/3 on the left.
That invites me to look further, longer, to the painting.

So Germa, it was the implied movement in it that got you in? :confused:

Hmm, most of the stuff I have to work from for this series is based on super Macro photos of flowers and other flora. Not much movement...

And it's funny, your perceived movement from that swish you are talking about isn't actually a leaf in the photo. Believe it or not, that is a super Macro photo of a bud (the thing on the green stem on the right) in front of a background fully formed flower of the same plant. The yellow "leaves you see" are some very distinct yellow "rays" coming out from the centre of the flower along some red petal edges. And the painting background is actually that full flower behind - but only about a quarter of the complete flower itself!

The fun of abstraction.

I knew the reference is a macro, but you made a new image of it, and in my case, it's my mind which 'decides' what I see.
That's the fun of abstractionism, and that's the fun of our brains too; the brains fit in what the eye actually doesn't see.

 :painting: :painting: :painting:

Here is The Nature Series - this one is number 6. 600 x 500mm Acrylics. This time based on a photo from Paint My Photo. This was one weird looking flower, the dark patches in it come from 'tears' in the original photo and the way PhotoSketcher mashes it up with my parameters.

The Nature Series no. 6

Let me now what you think. Good, bad, what you do and don't like etc.

Me too batman.  You seem to have achieved that papery look of poppy lleaves.  Can you show us the series all together.  I can't wait to see them "hanging" together!!

 Patricia   lynn.

Dunno about seeing them all hanging together - My house doesn't have enough wall space for that... It would need to be in a gallery or my own exhibition and that would need a lot more than just 6.

Besides, I have heaps of source stuff to work from. I don't know how long I will continue to the series for.

They are all in my Gallery under their own section though : http://www.paintbasket.com/members/index.php?action=media;sa=album;in=1424

Oh and stay tuned, no work this week so I intend getting stuck into some more of these!!!
