Experiments with colours and dots

Experiments with colours and dots - student project

I started off with creating organic shapes with a colour palette I really like...no planning, just putting down shapes:

Then I masked it, and used halftone and dot brushes to reveal only some of the colours underneath...

First experiment:

Second experiment with just a halftone brush over the top:

Then I joined the two together and played with multiplying the layers too...

I removed the halftone pattern...

I quite like the final image as a interesting pattern and collision of colours...

This was a fun exercise to do, when you don’t have any expectations starting out and it is about just playing,
