Out of the BluesteemCreated with Sketch.

in #art4 years ago (edited)

All who know me, will immediately understand why this title fits so well as a headline too. I like to think around the corner and so comes, as the picture slowly unveils from its blue background, this post also comes perhaps a little unexpected. Besides, the title of the original painting is "Libra" and somehow I quickly find an analogy to something else 😉.

But now to the painting.


The new digital artworks from e k a i t z a (https://superrare.co/ekaitza) immediately captivated me with their deep, warm blue tones. He/she (?) had already bid on one of my pictures and after a nice chat, we agreed to also trade something. So I am now the proud owner of "Color et lumen" (posting with kind permission fo the artist, https://superrare.co/artwork-v2/color-et-lumen-7362)


Inspired by this beautiful artwork, I set out to create the second piece of my "Out of the Blue" series. It was supposed to be an animation again, but in contrast to the usual fast and bouncy pieces, something rather slow, that matched the sensuousness of the palette. Minimalistic in movement, a very simple fade in and out, based on my picture "Libra". I have already written about the creation and my model.

In Photoshop I now created two variations, which should alternate in the animation. It needed several attempts and corrections, so that it also met my expectations as an animated gif. I created the fade in and out in After Effects.



Finally I trimmed the size and time in the online tool https://ezgif.com/optimize and tokenized at https://superrare.co/artwork-v2/out-of-the-blue-ii-7644, Uploaded file is 944x944px

Out of the blue indeed:) So hopeful to see you posting again, now i am sure that the price of steem will rise again,lol

Haha... don't I wish I had the power to influence the steem price. One way or another, this is still a great blogging platform. I'm overwhelmed with the warm welcome back. Had to take a break after all that mess last year.

Lovely re-imagining. That has always been a striking image but I love the power of the blue. It is such an exciting, futuristic color.

Hey, so good to see you here! Thank you for your kind comment. Yes, isn't that blue just beautiful? Did you check ekaitza's work mentioned?

Hey! Well, I will try to post more regularly again. Thank you so much for stopping by :-)

Cordial thanks, wonderful! 🍰

I'm very happy to see you here again! Or maybe it's my timing when I read but either way.. nice. I've always liked this color. Reminds me of cobalt / cobalt blue which kind of saturates or absorbs everything else around it.

You are right. Yes, that cobalt blue is like all absorbing... almost like a black hole. Only in blue ;-)
