Color and Composition Final

For our final in Color and Composition, we were told to create a tessellation, first in illustrator, and then in color aid paper. To come up with a tessellation that I liked, I went through at least five different pattern ideas and spent a couple hours researching color choice. In this project, my professor Liza pushed me to choose a color scheme that had a higher contrast than what I had done in my transparency project. Eventually, I settled on a roughly triadic color scheme of the primary colors yellow, red, and blue. I didn’t choose the pure hues, instead, I played with tint, shade, and saturation to make the composition more dynamic, while at the same time harmonious. I chose the pattern mostly for its 3D quality, which is accentuated by the tints and shade of the colors. Sadly, I don’t have my final back from grading, but here is the Adobe illustrator file in PDF format:
