This week’s sketch feels like it’s related to Sunday sketch #284, but I worked on them at different times and with different starting points. But they both feature half-rectangle triangles aligned in one direction, interspersed with squares (small and large).
I really like this type of design, because having lots of different shapes means lots of lines creating movement: vertically, horizontally and diagonally. It also means lots of colouring options!
In the previous version, I’ve used colour to combine some shapes: the green shapes are a small square combined with the centre of a kite-in-a-square unit. You can see all the different shapes more clearly in the next version, where I’ve coloured them all separately.
The use of colour can create interesting secondary shapes, which can push other parts of the design to the foreground or background.
The possibilities are endless!
This sketch could be made into a quilt really easily using kite-in-a-square units, squares and rectangles. The hard part would be coming up with a palette and deciding how to use it!
