Temari in Ultraviolet

The Pantone color of year for 2018 is Ultraviolet. I’ve made a start at a series that will be added to throughout the year.  The largest in the foreground is the newest and I’ve kept it more dominant in the colorway. It will be fun to see where the color takes me. It ”feels” different working this color. With Temari the ball is more or less in my face for the duration of the ball, so seeing the color is easy. To me the pallet is blue, violet, red. All those ingredients make the base. I do follow design directions of course, then again I don’t. For the big ultraviolet ball I wanted to try a structural marking I had never done before, something called S4–with extra guidelines. It makes a marking on the surface of 6 squares and 8 hexagons, all with equal length sides. It was quite easy to set the grid. In emphasizing the 4-6 combinations I kept to that beginning with the 1st layer of forms. The 2nd separate layer connects the centers of the 14 shapes using interwoven bands of color. To my eye it worked very nicely, both line and color. Something new for my tool kit.
