Simultaneous Contrast


So in our class we were given the task to create shapes and different colors alongside a base color that would be used to trick the viewer into thinking that the base color is different on both sides. At first I had a hard time thinking what shapes to do so I got straight to work with creating light and dark colors that would go with the base color. As I finished with my colors I realized that I needed to have shapes that would trick the viewer as well. The design above came to my head and it was as if I was putting a puzzle together, as I went on with assembling my design I found improved ways to lay out the shapes. This was an interesting project in the end because it reflects on my sense of colors and shapes.
