Gyre is an illustrative art piece which flowed from my brain during a period of experimentation and little planning.
Other than the facial features which obviously already have a structure to them, it was interesting to see the “order out of chaos” which appeared as the artwork developed.
Colour was also a key element here and I played around with colours which would not always be my first choice. Many artists have their preferred palette of colours. I seem to go through different phases and my background in design is never far from my mind when I am playing with colour-schemes.
