Digital art: Woven

81009 Woven

© Diane Beaty


I began this piece with a scan of fern found in my yard. From there,

I played with it a quite a bit, doing color and shape changes, and

worked with multiple layers and adjustment filters, among them

’emboss’ and ‘kaleidoscope’ until I got a look I liked. Those were

done in Photoshop, and I finished up the piece in Picnik.

    This is lovely! I would never have guessed the origin or the technique you used. It reminds me of art from New Mexico, USA.

    Thank you for sharing it.

      I’m glad you enjoyed it. I picked that green fern bit here in Florida because I liked the symmetrical pattern in the leaves. I played with its color first, using the colored pencil filter in Photoshop, and the resultant piece took on its finished appearance in tiny alteration steps from there. I like experimenting with colors and textures — always asking myself, ‘What would happen if I did this?’… I try a number of things… if it works, it works; if not, I just take a step backwards from that and try something else until I hit an unsettling roadblock or until the piece ‘feels’ finished to me.
