This is, in fact, a simple seaweed pattern found on the beach – nothing added and nothing removed. Only the colours have been removed and reduced to white on black. Then, in my imagination, there emerges a young lady, nervously responding to a knock at the door, late at night
As with The Mystic in a post last week, this is a seaweed pattern as found – nothing has been added and nothing taken away. The only editing has been the fading out of the sand (although some feint traces have been allowed to remain) and a slight colour saturation. Gradually a figure seemed to emerge – I’ve called him The Mendicant but there are other titles that could be applied which are equally appropriate.
Seaweed pattern as found – nothing added, nothing taken away (except the sand), merely rotated 90 degrees!
The first picture below was taken at the same time as the other ‘seaweed doodles’ I have posted previously.
The picture is mildly interesting at best, but I had spent quite some time in removing the background clutter and I had hoped for better. I played around further, rotating the images and, by just adding a little colour, created the wild dancers/revellers of the second picture.
For the benefit of those who think I’m completely crazy I’ve highlighted the images I saw within yesterday’s picture – the fish, top left; the fishseller beneath, wearing a headscarf and looking towards the bottom left corner (the shape of the nose and the cheek bone suggested age!)
