Painting with Patterns

Are you ready to re-invent the color wheel?

These paintings are created with acrylic paint, enjoying it's wonderfully opaque qualities, over a black surface. We added the earth pigments burnt umber, yellow ochre, and iron oxide to our primary color studies and expanded our understanding of color theory with many new mixing experiments and combinations.

We got inspired with geometric patterns from folk art, graphic art, and woven textiles. The bold results really pop! They grab our attention even from across the room.
