For my painting I created a pattern of hexagons next to each other. On top of that I created another pattern of circles on top of that. Instead of keeping the circles solid I made them transparent so their pattern combines with that of the hexagons.
For the colors I wanted to keep the bright colors outside of the circles or as the circle lines, while the inside of the circle was darker and more earthy colors to create a contrast between the two. Doing that also makes the circles pop out more on the painting. After painting the pattern I’ve developed a new appreciation for being able to use a computer to draw and color objects.
