Circles III

Acrylic on canvas
24" x 24"


This piece began as a series of pencil lines drawn with a compass, and the regions defined by the intersecting circles were painted one color at a time.  The colors are arranged to preserve horizontal and/or vertical symmetry in the design.

When possible, highly contrasting pairs of colors are used in adjacent regions, such as purple/yellow, red/green, and blue/orange.
