Welcome back!

I finished up Nathan Goldstein’s Design and Composition this week. This final chapter discussed color and color perception. Our aesthetic judgments of color are made based on its hue, value, and intensity. We distinguish colors based on their common name and brilliance. The chapter also touched on the concept of the color wheel, how a color’s intensity can be modified by placing complementary colors next to or overlapping one another.

This week, I spent a bunch of time doing and re-doing my design. I’ve gone through more than 15 iterations and am still doing more! I initially thought that I was just going to do a simple geometric pattern for the mural, but I’m realizing that representing something meaningful would be better. Although my project seeks to demonstrate that color alone can induce emotion, representing joy through both color and the design is the direction I want to go in.

Something about the way dandelions disperse their seeds through the wind appealed to me; my art will conceptualize the idea of ‘spreading seeds of joy.’ I’ve completed some very crude, preliminary designs of the mural! I’ll continue the editing/iterative process this week as well. 

(Please don’t judge my stem it will change I promise ;))

Prom was also super fun this weekend! Check out some pics on my Instagram @samrit.mathur 🙂

Thanks for tuning in this week!
