This pattern, “Ring of Angels,” was born from my painting Forest Spirit. I detailed the process in my post Creating Patterns but I’ll cover it here as well in a bit more detail. As I like to do with patterns, I started by choosing a small, square portion of the painting, as shown below:
From there, I created a spiral:
And from there, I played with the colors until I came to this:
Ring of Angels by Dee-Ann LeBlanc
Medium: Acrylic, Digital Alteration
Since this piece was created from a physical painting, I keep the hard edges of the spiraled pieces in place as a nod to the original format. So far this is my favorite pattern! As I stared at it, I kept seeing angels or birds, and decided that it was the angels I saw the strongest. Hence the name “Ring of Angels.” What do you see?
This is also the first pattern that I extended into a tiled version, which I call Angelic Dreams. I’ve also created color variations for this pattern: Spiral Snowflake, Winter Vines, and Sunset Dance.
