So this week when we were told to make a composition, my mind went crazy. I LOVE PATTERNS. It’s borderline obsession. So, I started playing with my old ICM homework and tweaking the colour on them.
Lines ahoy – Final piece here
This is lines, just lines. I played with the saturation here and made the saturation of each ‘circle’ vary while the hue and brightness stay the same.
Here the brightness varies within each circle.
Next, the saturation was the same but the brightness varied – the result was quite dull.
Then I tried changing the hue over a small range (0-30) while keeping the others constant.
Triangulation –Final piece here
Here I had 2 rows of triangle fractals – where the hue, saturation and brightness varied in each fractal and the alternate rows were complementary colours.
Here, the hue is varying within the triangle over a small range and you can choose the hue range.
Saturation is varying in each module here.
I thought the previous image had depth. Until I saw what happened when I varied brightness. This effect was perfect for this pattern. It brought 3D into 2D.
Back to Basics – Final piece here
I still wanted to do something that was using basic shapes so that the shift in colours was more obvious. I was recently introduced to Sol Lewis so I decided to use one of his pieces as my inspiration.
The below composition is what I came up with. The pieces on the left constantly vary in saturation. The one on the right in brightness and the hue of the two are complementary. The middle piece varies in hue across the previous 2 hues.
