Abstracting from Form

                                            Scanned photograph with negative shapes outlined

                                                           Reverse of negative shapes

I did two paintings from this idea, which I found a useful technique for exploring abstract ideas.

The pictures are quite different, one using curvilinear abstraction the other rectilinear.  I have also changed the colours.  The latter picture works particularly well as a portrait picture when the three black marks become people.
