The parameters of our project was to use Itten's colour wheel and incorporate complementary colours, split complementary, analogous, tetrads, and Bezold in specific parts of the wheel. The important element of this project was that it had to have a theme. A THEME?? How does a colour wheel have a theme? After showing us some exemplars from past projects, the creative energy started flowing. I finally decided on a Quilt Theme, as it seemed a natural fit since with quilting we incorporate colour, pattern, geometry, harmony, etc....all the components of this project.
The final work was to be produced on watercolour art board using gouache. Here is my Quilt Colour Wheel...
The elements are...centre - 6-pointed star; colour wheel elements - Dresden plate; internal corners - card trick; external corners - compass or star; edge design - spool.
It was interesting to see all the different colour wheels produced by my classmates when they were lined up on the board. Great work!
Next project is about values....and I'm sure I'll stress the same way with this project.
