December – Shadows

Colour Project – Shadows, Part 1

My original intention was to look at metallic colours in December. Gold, silver, bronze etc. I also planned to work through the book Folding Techniques for Designers, From Sheet to Form by Paul Jackson. It became apparent in the first few days that these samples would work much better in plain white paper.  At  this time I also visited the Picasso to Warhol exhibition at the WA Art Gallery and saw works by Alexander Calder (I’ve loved his work since discovering it in High School) The shadows created by his two pieces below helped confirm my change of plan. Shadows and light play a huge role in the colours we see.
