Op Art x Five

A combined challenge for the Fast Friday Group to use Line and Color and the Creative Seasons Group to use Five.

I found an intriguing picture on pinterest which led to this project of op art in the style of Bridget Riley.

I drew around my hand, added curved lines and text to describe me in my hand portrait. I wanted to use a red and yellow fabric to show my hot flashes.

I drew it out several times with a permanent marker. Then, I printed out my drawing on Extravaganza and layered it on top. Turns out the sheer printed fabric had a blue tint because the red fabric underneath appears purple!
