an abstract version of oak branches

Blue Grove

This is a kind of abstract photographic art that I call phabrics. (Get it? “Fabric,” but with the “ph” from “photo”?) Phabrics are based on photographs, but they are carefully color-modified to look more like  printed fabrics. It’s sort of like “paint by numbers,” but you use the “wrong” colors.

When I took the original, it was a windy day, and the photo suffered for it. The leaves had moved too much. I was trying to capture the pattern of the branches anyway, so rather than discard it, I thought it would make a great candidate for abstraction.

I think it turned out quite well.
