I had Colour Theory class in the 2nd semester of my FIND design program. Our first major assignment was so create an acrylic painting that is visually balanced. Through this assignment, I learned about the visual weight of colours ad how to balance them.
The colours we had to use were:
mid red, blue, yellow
bright green, orange, purple
value 8 blue, value 5 red, value 2 yellow
This painting was inspired by Picasso’s cubist art style. I started with the center spiral and took sections of it and put it in other areas. I drew one spiral and used a carbon paper to make each of the separate pieces the same size.
The painting was then photographed and digitized so I can make duplicate prints. You can purchase a print here if you are interested!
