Block No 10

So I have to do this while I'm traveling… I have a free morning this morning and I'm going to decide on an image do preliminary drawings and then go to the plaza and sit in the sun with my coffee and finish the block on paper…

I have several choices… but I will probably go with this one..


The background of this image is interesting… it works better as a rectangle rather than a square… so this block would need to be bigger than 6"….. Probably 6" X 8"

Look at the way the veins in the leaf move and compliment the strong straight lines of the wall.

Green against orange….  complimentary



These are corresponding secondary colors to primary colors… what are secondary colors…

A secondary color is a color made by mixing two primary colors in a given color space


Imagine this as a quilt… different pattern images placed as randomly as this…some match some don't……

You would need to blend the colors and I like the way some patterns are cut in half to make a whole.
