Pattern development

Using the two traced shapes (larger ones drawn on the tracing paper) developed in the lesson today create at least 3 different pattern combinations mixing together the two different shapes. Think about rotational symmetry. Add colour to at least 2 of them with colouring pencils. Select 2 complementary colours (opposite in colour wheel), i.e. red and green, blue and orange or yellow and purple.

You could try outlining shapes in the colours and leaving them hollow or filling them with solid shade. Advanced colouring would include blending the colours from light to dark. If you select Red and Green you could blend pink into deep red and lime into emerald or forest green. Be sure to stay in the lines!!!!
