A pattern is repetition of a design to create something that is uniform. On the other hand a matrix is taking many patterns and overlapping them. The use of many different colors was the result of my experimentation with color theory. For this piece, 50% of the project is covered in earthtones, by mixing compliments, also known as intensity change, to help pull the piece together. This along with analogous colors helped unify the composition.
In the project we had to work as a group, which involve talking with each other to insure that everyone was on the same page with what colors we were using. With this we wanted to make sure are artwork would fit together with the color theory as one big piece.
