Last week, FolioFocus classmates let loose and embraced abstracts (and a touch of geometrics) with some gorgeous results.
Leah broke out her acrylic paints for the first time in a long time especially for the task!
"It’s been 2 years at least since I touched my acrylics - so far only one tube had dried out 😂"
Having mixed a bunch of delicious colours and shades, she took to the canvas, creating intuitive marks and movement, pulling and moving the paint.
The end result is a collection of soft furnishing and home decor designs.
Louise too a more geometric and structured approach. Inspired by the potteries in Cornwall and a recent trip she took to Marazion, for a fresh coastal collection.
Krystal used digital tools to create here designs:
"I'll admit abstract is one of my favorite things to do. Once I choose a color pallet its easy for me to flow with the design. I used my iPad and the Procreate app for these. Included in this post is the photo I used as inspiration from my weekend in Cuba.
I added a time lapse video of my process as well. I was initially going to incorporate both designs into one, but decided they worked better as separates".
