Art Every Day, Friday, February 22nd, 2013
Here is today's new piece. My goal with it was to prove to myself, cause I need reinforcement, how much the quilting effects the quilt. Here, I used very, very little quilting in an effort to see how the colors behaved. Some of the rectangles are warm with cool colored circles and some are cool with warm colored circles. In addition to visual temperature, I also played with value and am pleased with what has happened. If you look at the yellow rectangle, it should be coming forward because it is warm and it does look like it is in front of the dark blue green circle. However, the light blue circle looks like it's sitting on top of it, which it physically is. However, look at the light blue circle in the orange rectangle. It looks like it is underneath the orange fabric, as though the circle was cut from the orange to reveal the light blue below, only it's not, the blue is on top.
Color is such a trip. Sometimes visual temperature will trump all, other times color scale will take over. But, quilting will always trump both!
Hope you have a great day.
