Abstract 136 revisited (autumn shades)

 

This image is a variation on Abstract 136 posted in 2012  In the original explanation I wrote:

‘One of the most attractive features of autumn is the range of colours produced by nature.  But I’m not sure we always appreciate the full extent of that range.

To create the pattern below I used the eyedropper tool to extract the colours from just two or three of my autumn images. No two colours are exactly alike  –  there are subtle differences  –  and the selection was by no means exhaustive.   It was not the purpose here to indicate or suggest any quantitative balance.  Maybe I will attempt that on some other occasion  –  or maybe not!!!   For now let’s just enjoy the colourful pattern.’

  1. Autumn’s palette—and such beautiful colours.

  2. I like the way you’ve done this. It made me try to imagine the source pictures, then try to imagine four seasons together.

  3. I like this exercise, and I agree, autumn’s colors – whichever way you spell it – are extraordinarily beautiful.
