Everything has a shape, right? But what exactly is a shape? Shape is a flat area surrounded by edges or an outline. Artists use all kinds of shapes. Geometric shapes are precise and regular, like squares, rectangles, and triangles. They are often found in human-made things, like building and machines.
Have you ever wondered how artists actually create art? Once they've chosen a subject matter, gathered their supplies, and picked up a paintbrush for the first time - what happens next? Sometimes starting with a simple circle or square or other geometric shape - is the answer.
The shape of things is something we tend to take for granted. Reproducing exactly what is in front of us is fine if all we are after is a likeness, but to extract more from our subject and to make the painting say more, we can modify and rearrange shapes to amplify what we see.
Ever since discovering this inspirational style, I knew I wanted to adapt it a bit. It is fun and kind of high-energy, but the contrast for each geometric painting is a little too much for me. So my foray into painting reminded me why I love painting so much (as much i love travel photography and journaling). I love the imperfect lines and painterly brush strokes and the varied shades of the same few tones. I am a human being after all, not a machine. I allow some humanity to enter into my straight lines and geometric shapes and l discovered that geometry is actually a human value. Precisionism is a philosophy, not an equation.
Do you enjoy geometric coloring pages, rather than having to color in something concrete and formal? If you said yes, I am right there with you.
When many people think of adult coloring books, they think of pictures of flowers, or whales, or mandalas, or inspirational quotes in fancy fonts. But as it turns out, geometric coloring books are actually one of the my most favoruite kinds of coloring books out there. Geometric Coloring Books are coloring books that have geometric patterns of all shapes and sizes. They are the ultimate in meditative coloring.
The thing I love about this Geometric colouring book is that it has 25 unique designs with different degrees of difficulty. This book is perfect for experimenting with colors & explore different color techniques and so create different shades. With these coloring pages, I was able to color however I liked, & made into a truly unique coloring design. I had total creative freedom.
Ever since I was a little girl, Geometric Coloring Sheets have held a special place for me in my coloring time. Even to this day, as an adult, I love to sit down and just color sometimes. On top of the enjoyment simple coloring brings it also develops a vital skill for geometry studies. This is the skill of visualizing a problem. The Celtic art is extra special for this reason, as all of the art at some point 'weaves'. The strands of different colors start to go over and under each other. If a child can learn what is happening, and follow it, they are fine-tuning their spatial sense.
