Geometric Abstract Design

artist-spotlight-michael-begenyis-color-rich--L-BP6fwHWassily Kandinsky and Piet Mondrian demonstrated how transition from the realistic to the abstract world looks. Using a straight edge and circles create a design that is balanced through symmetry and color. The painting needs to include implied and actual line, geometric shapes and mixed color.

Use bristol paper taped down with  a “masking tape 1/2” border  onto your drawing board.

Using pencil draw out the lines to your design using a straightedge and compass.

Determine your “palette”. This means choose the colors you will use throughout. each color’s “family”should also be included. Black will only be used at the end if needed.
