Sentences in complementary colors

We have created a painting inspired by the works of Paul Klee and Alighiero Boetti using letters of the alphabet as a pretext to create forms and spaces to be colored. I explained that the sentence choice does not have to be recognizable: it is not a “slogan” advertising that needs to be readable, but a mere pretext to create a grid of straight lines, oblique, curved, horizontal or vertical, to be filled with complementary colors.

    • Hi Vanessa! I look forward to see your lesson, did your students paint with watercolors or acrylics? I’m curious to see which sentences they wrote… Mine are in italian language!
      Thanks for your comment Vanessa, see you soon on the web 🙂
