Extra Activity 2
Take your template and draw your shape several times on a page. Shapes can be overlapped or rotated or flipped. Divide page into a large grid. Spacing can be at right angles or with diagonals. Using complementary or analogous colours paint your pictures changing colour when you reach a grid line.
feel doomed on this chapter. Everything seems to have gone wrong, though this
time it’s my own fault, because I didn’t read the instructions properly. I
produced two lovely pictures (well, I like them) of overlapping apples, with
each section painted in a different colour, and one is complementary
(red/green) and the other is analogous (yellow green, yellow, yellow orange).
So, spot the mistake… The grid is missing on both pictures. I can only sigh,
reprimand myself for my own stupidity, and start again… I had such fun doing
these as well!
OK, here we are… Two practically perfect pictures (well, they
meet the brief at any rate!). Actually, I think the first two were neater, and
both the analogous compositions have a yellow that turned green when I added
black (again), so they don’t look quite as harmonious as they should. But I
like the reds and greens of the second complementary picture.
