Kaleidoscope Egg Design


This weekend (during the evenings), I painted this artwork for a friend’s birthday. He really likes colourful, African-inspired things, so I came up with my Kaleidoscope Egg Design to suit his house. 

The design was really very simple. I first drew in the shapes and lines for painting, so that each of my sections was going to be roughly the same width. And, of course, I painted it on plywood!

Then I started placing my colours. Really, you could use whatever colours you liked… you just need to make sure that the use of each colour is distributed evenly throughout the design. For example, here is the first colour I added (red). 

Don't worry about the lines being too perfect.

I used 7 colours in total. I'm very pleased with how it turned out.

Happy painting!
