Paintings Transformed into Kaleidoscopes

A friend of mine, Vicki, has an eye for colour, pattern and form.  She takes wonderful photographs of things around her house or out on her walks and turns them, via the use of specialist kaleidoscope software, into stunning designs. 

Sometimes, I am lucky enough to have some of my own paintings given the "Vicki Treatment" and here is a recent example of one.

So, from this painting:


She manipulated the image, these are some of the early stages:





 And finally, produced this:

They are very intricate and very pleasing on the eye.  I think they would make great scarves or a quilt.

Rolina said...

Thanks Connie and Sandy, I get really excited when she does one of my paintings - they are always so beautiful. They take her ages too!

I think you should do your art licensing homework and get these out to the world. This is just stunning, Rolina! So generous of you to share this info. Thank you.

I'm loving all the ways the image has been treated, but have to say that my favourite is the work she started with!

Rolina said...

Many thanks Sheila, Jennifer, Chris, April and Win! I will let Vicki know how much they are loved, maybe one day, scarves will be made!
