Purple and Yellow Leaves (Digital Print)

Purple and Yellow Leaves (Digital Print)
Originally uploaded by

This is an image that I made today. I call it a digital "print" because it looks like a print, but I made it on the computer. I used Painter's pattern pen, loaded with a pattern that I created from a recent photo of yellow leaves. I used digital pastel in yellow over a purple background. Then I posterized the image, experimenting with the amount of posterizing until I got the result I wanted. Then I cropped the image (a couple of times) until I had this composition. I stumbled into this little process on my own, and am still experimenting with it, sorting out the best way to use it.
