More Joan Mitchell
Joan Mitchell is an artist that continually inspires me. I love her use of color and space. So I’m continuing to do collage abstractions based on her work.
The particular painting I used for these collages is pictured above.
Because I was in the midst of gridlock at the time, I also wanted to try to render the painting in a grid. I was pleased with the result, but then it also occurred to me that Photoshop can be used to make images into grids as well. I thought I’d compare.
Of course, other than the time it took me to figure out the size of the pixilation, Photoshop produced their work in seconds. Mine took a couple weeks….Let’s be generous and say mine has more subtlety. And at least I got the experience of studying the way Mitchell created her work. I’m sure the Gods of Photoshop paid no attention.
