Pure color makes this design provocative and unforgettable.
Susan says, “There is so much to explore in this photo. Green, yellow and black colors combine to create a glowing palette that moves between cool to warm and dark to light. The close framing of the upsweeping shapes gives this photo an art deco feel that I’ve never encountered in nature before. There is a ton of inspiration here whether you are looking for ideas about shape, motion, line or color. The random sprinklings of yellow pollen are a whimsical bonus. Free for the taking courtesy of Mother Nature.”
Lucia says, “My only intention was to create an abstract from the green leaves. Little did I know it would be a lesson in design. Susan is correct. You can find inspiration for your work in nature. She has pointed out many wonderful design features in this photo. Another element to keep in mind is lighting. The soft, filtered sunlight gives this photo an ethereal feel that takes it up a notch.”
When you are looking for inspiration or need to reconnect to your creative side, take a walk outside and take a close look at what is blooming in your neighborhood.
