This week I decided to take on my own study – a study minimalism. New Zealand Maori designs are predominantly colored red, black and white.
This limited color palette helped focus the color palette and add to the study of minimalism, this week. I managed to do 3 series of designs.
Series 1: Houdini
In this first design, I was hoping to capture the idea of feeling trapped. The black background showing the blackness, fear, and emptiness this may bring.
This is obviously a follow-up to “Trapped” and represents release/freedom/escape.
Series 2: Quartet
I have redesigned the second panel to look like this, which I may actually use if I make these up.
This series, which may not be complete, was playing with squares and rectangles and how sections align and are sectioned off.
I really enjoyed the design activity this week and love looking at the simplicity of color and shapes. I am linking up with Lorna @ Sew Fresh Quilts for Let’s bee Social (see button on the right).
