About the Image(s)

A few years ago "twirls" went viral. I still like to do them. They
involve Mezzotint and radial blurs. I added a filter distort polar
coordinates to this one and inverted the colors. The original Wabi Sabi
tulip was taken on my lightpad during my "SafeAtHome 'Artist in
Residence' period.

Purple hues are my favorite so how can I not love this! Twirls have definitely been going around again and why not, they are so much fun to do and see the results.
Thanks for sharing your at-home play!   Posted: 06/07/2020 21:53:55

I love this. How fun! I have to play with this. It's hard for me to see how you went from the original to that awesome design. I need to play with this.   Posted: 06/11/2020 12:42:30

I've seen a reasonable amount of twirls and am anxious to learn how to do them. This one is really beautiful.   Posted: 06/12/2020 19:31:26

Lisa, I would not have thought a wilting flower losing its petals could turn into such a beautiful twirl.

I have no suggestions to make to such a great image!   Posted: 06/15/2020 18:52:18
