EXERCISE 3.21: LIGHT ON COLOUR

In your home (or a café/library etc), identify a wall the sun falls across and return to photograph it multiple times during the course of a day. Try to select the most colourful wall you can, though you may want to experiment with a range of different surfaces. Crop your images into squares, print themContinue reading “EXERCISE 3.21: LIGHT ON COLOUR”

EXERCISE 3.20: UNDERSTANDING COLOUR

Draw two grids of squares, filling one with colours that you like and the other with colours you dislike. Then put the two grids side by side and ask the question ‘which one looks better?’ We tend to like vivid colour more because they enhance our personality, brighten up our days and make us thinkContinue reading “EXERCISE 3.20: UNDERSTANDING COLOUR”

EXERCISE 3.19: TEMPERATURE

Research examples of ‘cool’ and ‘warm’ colour spaces – collecting images of interiors which might range from a health spa to a nightclub and more. Giving attention to lighting and finishes, describe how you think each effect might have been achieved and explain what feelings they have been designed to evoke. Re-draw, paint or collageContinue reading “EXERCISE 3.19: TEMPERATURE”

EXERCISE 3.16: RHYTHM

Research and critically analyse Fibonacci, the Golden Ratio, Mandelbrot spirals and any other spatial ratios you can discover. A simplification of the golden ratio is the Rule of Thirds or 2:3, in which space is divided into two thirds, the larger portion housing the elements that define the main use, leaving the final third forContinue reading “EXERCISE 3.16: RHYTHM”

EXERCISE 3.15:ART

Following on from the work of these artists, research another artist/artwork exploring pattern in a curated interior space. Ask questions about their use of pattern, do they treat it as infinitely unrepeatable, or is there rhythm and repetition in their work? In your sketchbook, present a critical appraisal of their art with words and imagesContinue reading “EXERCISE 3.15:ART”

EXERCISE 3.12: SEEING PATTERNS

Research and draw (or photograph) more patterns found on objects or surfaces, in packaging in interiors, in architecture or in nature and study these images to find the repeating motifs within them. Can you see where a core pattern joins onto its repeated clone to form the pattern? Mark on the images to indicate theseContinue reading “EXERCISE 3.12: SEEING PATTERNS”
