Hi Coco - this is proving a popular palette and I especially like that background pattern. However, the key feature is the main shape and I see that you have let the fractal loose on this one with lots of repetitions, curling and then dying away to infinity. That adds great detail and a pleasing variation in texture from the large-scale segments (with a neat ripple pattern) down to the fine, almost filigree, work.
Very many thankies, dear David ~ for your wonderful comments and the ~ I'm enjoying this rusty colour palette and playing with patterns within the fractals themselves. The muse is taking a small break as I have my elder daughter Belinda and her youngest son (two-year-old Ellis) visting from interstate, so there's very little time to even get on the computer, let alone creating much of anything! Cheers, Coco
