Project 7B. Blind Contour Painting

Assignment: Create asymmetry with color with intensity change.

I created asymmetry by making several blind contour sketches of my self. By drawing myself without looking at my self, I allowed myself to pay more attention to how I place lines down on the paper. I wasn’t worried about getting the drawing to look right. That wasn’t the assignment. I needed to capture some essence of myself. Furthermore, I imported the sketches into photoshop and began to ink the drawings. This process was quick. The next thing I did was begin to color my drawings. I added the complements of the colors in different parts of the drawing. I then started to slowly mix the complements together and place them in different parts of the painting. Doing this caused an intensity change. It showed how the colors could go from light to dark by just adding their complements.

Assignment: Create a tessellation using complementary color. Use color value to create a design variation on the tessellation. In addition, create intensity change to the tessellation.

For the project, I choice to use certain completementary colors. In the middle I used red and green, which are complements of each other. I then added a intensity change to it. The more of the complement I added to one color the dark it got. However, the less I used, the less dark the color got. Furthermore, throughout the painting I added other complementary colors. In some areas I add blue and orange. In others I add violet and yellow. The change from one to the other shows the intensity change.
There were several designs that I used in the painting. I added a rotational symbol in the middle. This can be done by rotating a symbol from another one that looks just like it. Next, I added a reflection symbol throughout the painting. Most of the symbols in the painting are reflection. Last, I added a translation symbol. It severed as the frame for the entire painting.
