Sunday sketch #218

Back to some curves this week! With some half-square triangles to add a bit of zing.

I want to call this one ‘hairy squares’. It makes me think of those shaggy 70s throw rugs. Remember those?! Or maybe Chewbacca. Anyway….

As always, colour placement makes all the difference when it comes to pushing elements to the background or bringing them to the foreground.

Reversing the colourway and just using black and white introduces the 4 outer curves, which suddenly makes all the circles much more visible (to me, at least).

Flipping to a black background might make them clearer.

Or bringing in a third colour as a background. Now it’s just a stack of circles!

Depending on how you look at it, you might see the circles first or you might see the (hairy) squares. Or maybe the curvy diamonds? You could use a different colour to highlight those instead. Lots of potential for varying the look and feel of this design.

This design would be really easy to make into a quilt pattern. It’s all just drunkard’s path units, half-square triangles, and squares.
