Iris abstract 2

By helenlinda
I have several mono conversions of the coloured Iris abstract - this one is bringing out the maximum amount of black, and it retains all the markings on the flower very well.
I was thrilled to bits to receive a User Award from pamelajean for the coloured version yesterday - she always sees such amazing things in my manipulations - and yesterday they included "butterflies, birds, angel fish, sting rays - a bit of an under-water atmosphere"
I wonder if you can see them here too ?
Thanks for looking

Love the mono! Yes, I can see the butterflies etc too plus a female form in long robe over to left under the angel wings.

Mono has to be done properly to really work and this does. - gaRY

I love this as much as the colour version, Helen.
Perhaps posting against a dark background might bring out the intricate detail even better?

Seriously good, Helen. I agree with Bill about a black viewing bg to give it even more impact.

The mono conversion makes us look at the form more - this would make a wonderful mural.

More about the shapes in mono, Helen. Less organic and more material-like.

Thanks everyone - yes, I had intended to set it against black, which is why I had not given it a black border - thanks for the prompt Bill - consider it done !!!

Looks good in mono too, Helen, but if I had to choose, the colour would just win it! Wink

This is truly beautiful Helen, it looks like the kind of pattern you can imagine in an elegant paper weight. Stunning!
