I experiment with 3D models of such polyhedra and use their internal mathematical rhythms to create my digital paintings. I am a fan of watercolor media, so I give my digital art a watercolor look. Color is as important to me as the design of the shapes I use, so I spend an equal amount adjusting the colors to get them to where they feel right.
Paul Petersen studied painting at UCLA with Richard Diebenkorn and William Brice, earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. He did post graduate study at the Art Center College of Design. He's had careers as an art director, watercolorist, and medical illustrator. His technical proficiency in computer graphics has put him in a position to explore a new area of abstract geometric image creation he calls "Spherical Art". He began his exploration of this method in 2015.
