PIXELTONE GRADIENTS (SHIFT SERIES) by Tom R. Chambers

This series is a derivative of Pixelscapes utilizing halftone conversions, gradient filters and the Huerot applet to explore Abstract Expressionism. In visual experiences, harmony engages the viewer, and it creates an inner sense of order, a balance in the visual experience. Observing the effects colors have on each other is the starting point for understanding the relativity of color. Click on the images (allow time for loading and color shift).
