Ideas

  • Keep your emphasis large.

  • Think about a border.

  • Use gradation of color to make it interesting.


Notice how important the lines are!!


Look how the artist used space.


Look how the artist used detail and symmetry.


Plan a background for interest.


Think color change, gradation, and contrast.


Repetition can form a rhythm that forms interest. Notice the slight changes that add further interest.


What dominate color scheme did this artist use?


What elements and principles do you notice on the next three batiks that you could use in yours?


This is a great design. Can you think of anything that would make it more interesting?
