ACRYLIC: COLOR PRACTICE

In 1949, Josef Albers began his iconic Homage to the Square series, an example of which is this 1969 oil on Masonite painting, also titled Homage to the Square.

After our lesson in color theory, we need to practice mixing paint colors.

His series Homage to the Square, produced from 1949 until his death, used a single geometric shape to systematically explore the vast range of visual effects that could be achieved through color and spatial relationships alone.

Geometric Abstraction-Geometric abstraction refers to nonobjective art that is based on reductive and geometric principles. At its purest, it seeks to strip art down to its most fundamental shapes and lines. Artists in many different movements and time periods have worked in this mode.
