Palette Creatures Released!

New palette creatures are now swimming in an alternate setting.   For those not familiar, palette creatures are colorful shapes that actually show up on my watercolor palette after a watercolor painting session.  When I spot them, I take a photo and play with them in Photoshop.  Some creatures require more attention than others.  This lot demanded a little more nudging than some of their predecessors.

My world is a wonder of visual candy and foreboding shadow shapes vying every waking moment for my full attention.

  1. Ooh! It took me a moment there to see the face – I saw the top left as the head with flowing hair, then the face – he’s incredible, almost as if just in transition from water creature to being..something just a little bit painful about him..?

  2. It’s about the magnificent colors, saving the light, maintaining the movement, the crispness of your shapes…I LOVE it all! Am I snorkeling along with them underwater? No goggles. I think so!

  3. Elena, fantastic great idea!!! I often keep the sheet I use for acrylics or Oils mixing if not using a palette and the shapes and what you see is amazing just another art. You took it one notch higher as always.

      1. Elena I never help them to grow beyond the marks they left on the paper.. but with your inspiration they will receive some life.. Love the idea and thank you for being around to give us tips. 🙂

      1. Wow, I sometimes liked my palette painting better than the original painting, and that was always a bit disheartening. I like your joyful way of celebrating it.
