Warhol Apples Take Two…


Creative Sketchbook, Module 1

Chapter 2,
Extra Activity 1

Andy Warhol style repeating pattern of fruit/veg in pairs of complementary colours, using tints and shades in addition to hues


This carries the previous exercise forward a stage by introducing tints and shades, and I’m fascinated to see how complementary colours work together. I look at the colours I mix and am convinced they will clash, but once they’re together they each seem to make the other look brighter. I couldn’t live with that kind of design though. And my brushwork still needs attention.
