Residual Flourishes


This is a design I made, or more rightly, a picture, that I might reveal to you what a flourish is… Look on the marble part of the wall and see flourishes are set apart evenly by separating them using a grid. You will see that I also staggered the color quite easily…

The picture itself, that I made, if not important, beyond what flourishes can do…

Below, are some example of flourishes and what they can be used for…

What can flourishes be used for?  As you see on the marble part of this brick wall,  there are flourishes, different colors, and spaced precisely apart.  These, as is everything else in this picture, is spaced precisely, by using a grid… 

So flourishes, it might be said, are parts of brick work, or ancient ruins, or, depending on the flourish, stone work… Or even stationary, depending on the style. 

Flourishes are designs that compliment either cement, or a part of a letter to convey via e-mail.  Flourishes then, are accents to an already finished composition. They accent a picture because they are present in just about every building that is accented at all!

So, they have a prize position in works that you accomplish, that contains a wall surface, or that is more swirls than accents, intended more for a stationery kind of use. 

They do come in handy, to change their color, dimension, and juxtaposition.   These accents have there place in drawings, graphic design, art-work etc..  You can pick out individual pieces that match with other pieces, and save them to a separate file that can produce an “accent” to your composition.  You can make them appear like glass, or what-ever suits your work.
