Warm and Cool Exercise
My art group met yesterday. We did an exercise where we each created two versions of the same design. One using warm colors and one using cool colors. I cheated a bit by using only muslin backgrounds for both (is muslin warm or cool?) and I used black for the "trunks" of my trees because I didn't have any scraps large enough in any other colors. I don't know if these will get any more finished than they are now, but it was a fun exercise. The idea came from Lyric Kinard's book Art + Quilt: Design Principles and Creativity Exercises.
