About the Image(s)

The original was really just a snapshot of the bandstand in the park at Beamish Museum.

Experimenting still with Topaz studio 2 I tried various option in AI remix settling on this option. The black border chosen to contrast with the bright colours was added in Photoshop using my favourite inner glow techinique.

I love the result, especially the geometric figures. In last week's episode of Landscape Artist of the Year 2019, there was a lass who produced similar figures to these, and this reminds me of her work. The colours are OTT, but subtly so, and you get away with it. Great Pic!   Posted: 11/02/2019 03:29:52

I think you made excellent use of AI Remix. It's easy to overdo it's effects but I think yours are just right. I have no quarrels with your border, but I suggest you explore the extensive borders within Studio 2. As always, its possibilities are endless but take time and experimentation to learn.   Posted: 11/02/2019 22:13:34

Wow........what a most colorful creation but I find the colors to be a bit over the top?   Posted: 11/05/2019 10:51:15

Great piece of art you've made here. Colors and the geometric figures are perfect for a modern art picture.   Posted: 11/15/2019 22:41:18

Very geometric and colorful, Ian! I think I agree with Mark, though, that the colors may be OTT. I keep coming back to this and changing my opinion, so take this with a grain of salt.   Posted: 11/21/2019 16:10:15
