Illustrating simple geometric patterns

My latest work in illustration has been the creation of simple geometric patterns against solic backgrounds of colour. This untitled illustration was a quick and happy one. Using an ink pen, I enlarged the brush size to get a thick circumference. I selected the symmetry option and using the line tool I began to draw line segments that connected at (what I hope are) 90 degree angles. I finished the quick draw by adding smiles for the little man sitting at the top. (hee hee). Some of the patterns have… Read more Illustrating simple geometric patterns

Gold acrylic triangle with black

My latest 10 x 10 inch// 25 x 25 cm acrylic on canvas continues my study of singular-focused images against black negative space. This piece features a heavily textured triangle shape that is entirely golden. Gold light I took photos of in the light, and so the shine of the black acrylic paint allows the viewer to also see raised texture floating in the blackness. Here (below) is a shot with the brightness turned down, and the contrast brought up to maximum. The painting has a much sexier look with… Read more Gold acrylic triangle with black

January Abstracts

My latest piece is warm, golden, azure blue-esque, iridescent and metallic. (The hour that I write this is a very late one, so bear with me.) This piece is small, yet the impact is big. Deep layers of varying shades of blue act as the backdrop of this work. Looking deeply, one can observe a light sheen of translucent turquoise that has an ever so slight iridescent quality. The concept of this piece began with a desire to have a richly layered blue foundation for another rich, yet contrasting ,… Read more January Abstracts

Green, blue and silver acrylic abstract

My latest work is entitled “Two Moon Lagoon“.   I used an acrylic pour method as the background; mixing white and silver as the colour for waves splashing on the coast. If you look closely, you can see a high tide wave emerging from the lower left side. As the acrylic pour developed: a coral-like branch protrudes out into the heart of the painting. The branches have a fractal quality to them, which pull the eyes deeper in. Over the vista, and through the green limbs of an alien-looking cactus… Read more Green, blue and silver acrylic abstract

Abstract Acrylic on Wood in gold, blue, and iridescent green

Latest Scratch Work: Herald Angel 2018- Acrylic on wood panel by Stephanie Konu This abstract 10 x 10 inch wood panel is a wild ride of eclectic technique, unusual colour, contrast, and a psychedelic trip into the imagination.   I named it Herald Angel because the golden field that sits in the north-west corner represents an angel’s visit. Darkness swirls below. Iridescent green floats away into the atmosphere. Its existence is alien and benevolent. I love how the heavy iridescent green floats over the complex blue background. The swirling blue… Read more Abstract Acrylic on Wood in gold, blue, and iridescent green

Electric Yellow Acrylic Abstract on Canvas

My latest painting is a splendid mix of bright yellow, iridescent blue, and white. There is a surge of excitement in this piece, and some mystery as well. As of yet, this painting is unnamed, which may as well be since I feel like it will have a short time with me as its owner. The eclectic blends and pops of colour on this unnamed work make it ideal for digitizing– a run through on Photoshop would produce some interesting lines that are invisible to the naked eye. I feel… Read more Electric Yellow Acrylic Abstract on Canvas

Soft Blue Sky and a Golden Sun

My latest painting is another example of my study of the sun. It features light whisps of glossy clouds as the backdrop of a pulsing golden sun.   I used texturing compounds to add variety to the surface of this painting. It has a muted style that sets it apart from many of my other paintings on this subject.   Thank you for stopping by! I appreciate your comments and I look forward to reading more. -S
