    One of the great Pop Art painting titles is "Donald Duck meets Mondrian" by the Scottish painter with the Italian-sounding name, Eduardo Paolozzi. Here's my affectionate and humorous (or is it just feeble?) tribute to Paolozzi and Andy Warhol. I call it "Allium meets Andy" [​IMG]

    LOVE IT!!! Very clever. Can't remember the specifics of the original offhand...did you even use the same colour combinations? (*scurries off to go check*)

    So, Anty, what did you find out?

    And yes. I, too, love both the idea, the collage, and the photo that stands for it all!

    (Assuming the one Tony was paying homage to was 'Flowers', the colour combos are different)

    Well Corinna & Antarctican, that was a research hare I didn't mean to set running! As you've guessed, it's Paolozzi's humorous title and Warhol's side-by-side quartets I'm paying tribute to. I initially did each shot with complementary colours for the bloom and its background, but the overall effect wasn't so good. But I did retain two of those, then added the enhanced "natural" colours version (purple flower, green background) and the red/turquoise version (just because I liked the combination). Using Warhol's colours would have been fun - but hard work!!

    Regards, Tony

    I quite liked that "hare" :D. Made me look things up I would otherwise NOT have looked up. Which is only good!

    Oh. Oops. The second link is not working the way it is... A pity.

    Yeah, I looked up the DD meets M pic, but it was so different than the Warhol quadruplications I've seen that I just went with the Warhols. It was the Monroe quadruplication I was initially visualizing, but then I saw Warhol had a 'Flowers' quad as well. As soon as I hit 'submit', mentioning the Flowers pic, I figured I'd gone with the wrong art piece. But as Lafoto said, it was a fun exercise!
