I Am The Diva Challenge #195: "Turning Old Into New"
The idea behind this challenge was to change the structure of a pattern - in my case I chose to take Meringue, a free-form pattern and change it into a grid-based pattern.
I decided to use the ideas of Mondrian and use a grid-based design similar to what Mondrian may have used and fit the freeform pattern Meringue into it, using some close-up sections and some farther away.I also decided to use the three primary colors that he often used in his designs. In retrospect, my design needs more white spaces.
I also veered off of the graphic flat Mondrian-type design to add shading to give the shapes a more 3 dimensional effect.
This challenge is done on a 6" x 6" piece of white drawing paper using Micron pens and Prismacolor colored pencils.
