GIMP Art Project – y8vis1t5l6tn5jrg Series

I’m just about finished with my first series of GIMP art images, made with GIMP version 2.6 for Ubuntu Linux 12.04. Using only the filters which come loaded with the program, I apply different filters and settings intuitively until I am satisfied with each image. It is very much exploratory, obsessive and satisfying work.

I started this series with a single image downloaded from some Google Image search – don’t remember what I searched for. This is what I usually do now. Maybe I feel like looking at images of furniture or living rooms, or maybe it’s Craigslist pictures. I find an image and begin to work on it.

Here’s y8vis1t5l6tn5jrg:

I turned it after a while into this:

y8vis1t5l6tn5jrg-022713-1842-WEB-FULL

I’m not really satisfied with this image any more, but I liked a lot of the shapes I was seeing at high magnification, so I grabbed 30 or so screenshots from it to work with as a series. I’ve produce about 20 finished works and I think the series is done.

Here’s Numbers 10, 20 and 4, with HQ closeups:
