10 October: Rule of thirds/little red dot devices… an experiment

Experimented with this concept today, after doing some quick studies of Klee and other artists such as Van Gogh.

Ended up producing a sketch and two abstract works or serials.

The rule of thirds states that 2/3rds of the canvas should be neutral tones and colours and the remaining third should be made up of contrasting colours (i.e. those opposite on the colour wheel – indigo/yellow).

Think that I could have made more use of initial primary colours (i.e. using a warm yellow and a cold yellow) when mixing and I have tried to add this on afterwards.  When I was reading the RA magazine today, I kept seeing this rule everywhere!!!
