Summer of Color 2015, Week 5: Green, Green, Pink

This year, instead of giving us three specific colors, Kristin is giving us two basic colors and we are supposed to choose our own shades of those.

For Week 5, we are supposed to choose two shades of green and one pink.
If you post your images to a blog or to Flickr I can see them. (If you posted to Facebook, sorry, but I don't have a Facebook account.)

I was playing around with a design a few days ago and knew I wanted to use it this week., but I didn't know what colors would be chosen. So I just used two random colors and figured I could easily change them digitally once the colors were announced. Amazingly, I chose two greens and one pink! I must be clairvoyant.


"The Squares Within"
This design was created from several photos I took at the Portland, Maine art museum. There were 

large openings in the second floor walls that looked down onto the lobby area of the first floor.  
Designs made from varied colored squares were painted on the lobby walls so I positioned myself
so that the painted squares would be framed by the openings upstairs. I knew when 
I took the photos that I would eventually use them to create an abstract design. I overlapped and   
rotated parts of my images until I had a composition I liked. Although the colors were originally
quite different, I changed them to greens and pinks even before I knew this week's colors.

I'm always impressed with your digital art, and these squares remind me of an M. C. Escher print. Lovely.

Thanks for all the great comments, everyone. I used to do mostly drawing and painting, but when my carpal tunnel got bad, I switched to digital art. Although I have been taking photos all of my life, I'm much more interested in photography now and my photos are great places to begin my digital work.
