This week's Try It On Tuesday challenge was "Splatters and Splodges." (I thought it was Splotches, not Splodges, but they're probably the same thing.)
Make of this art piece what you will. It ended up being a hodgepodge to the point where I don't even know what category of art it is: modern art, shapeism art, who knows art? It's definitely outside of my comfort zone, and not my usual style.
I started with a blank background that had a large brown splatter / splotch stain on it. Then I added the large stained text circles. Everything was too brown, so I added some sea blue colors to the text circles. That led me to want a sea map in the background. (It's there, if you look closely, but it's faint.) Then I added some brown crisscrossing lines, small brown stained text circles, and turquoise diamonds. I wanted a little more contrast, so I added a little purple to the large stained text circles.
I like the end result. What does everyone else think? And what category of art do you think it is?
I created this using GIMP 2.10.12.
