Want to Have an Opinion?

Wednesday, February 8th, 2006

I was not thrilled with my prototype that I posted yesterday. It was what I thought I wanted to do, but it looked somewhat trite to me and did not have that painterly feel that the original design had. It can be seen here. I am so glad that I am doing this exercise of working out the design. I rearranged the squares today in a vertical orientation. I don’t have a design wall anymore; I am using the floor. The photos are a little wonky. Here is the latest arrangement:


I need to play with the squares a little more. I introduced a lighter hot pink in the warm color area to give some value change. Remember that once this is fused, rainbow crosses will be added to the mix.

So, if you are so inclined, I am open to having your opinion about the two layouts. I may ignore it, but go ahead and tell me what you think. The colors are representative of the final piece. I will meticulously choose the colors and dye the silk to get a nice gradation of colors.
