Lesson 2 Exercise 2 – Choice #1


I tried a lot of sketches and painted 3 or 4 that I did not like. I finally chose the attached composition on water color paper using fabric paint.

Contrast is shown in two complementary colors: As close as I could come to Red-Violet and its complement Yellow-Green. The background is painted in Yellow-Green (mixed with white to lighten). All the elements are in Red-Violet.

Relationship is shown in the Red-Violet circles which are also related to the spirals.

It is my intention to do a second composition on the cotton Duck (since it is closer to the canvas I want to use for my quilts) but I may not have time before I need to learn about Lesson 3
