Color Wheel

IMG_77642D Design, Color Wheel, 26″ x 26″, Watercolor and Gouache

A. 1- Create a tessellation using complementary color.
2- Using color value to create a design variation on the tessellation.
3- Create intensity change to the tessellation.
B. 1-Create asymmetry with color.
2- With intensity change.

Coming into this project I had little work with tessellations, gouache, intensity change and color value. When starting this project there was doubt in my mind as to if this design would look good, but the outcome looked good mainly because of the extensive amount of intensity change in the piece.

This color wheel contains translation, reflection, and rotational symmetry within the design. Translation symmetry is when a figure is moved a certain distance in a certain direction; this is in my piece with the halves of the color wheel, the shapes are moved the same distance and direction on each side. Reflection symmetry is where one half is the reflection of the other half, like with the rectangles in the background. The rotational symmetry is with the border where it is the same around every side. Having these types of symmetry makes the image look pleasing to the eye because of the balance, harmony, and unity it creates.
