At the beginning of the year Julie Fei-Fan Balzer and Nat Kalbach set themselves the Second Floor Challenge. The idea was to do something that might not work. Experiment with a crazy idea and generally push yourself. Unfortunately this week was the final challenge but I thought I’d have a go anyway. It was to use all six primary & secondary colors.
I decided to do something a bit geometric with squares and circles and this is the result:
The biggest challenge with this was being OK with the imperfection. I don’t mind making mistakes but when I’m dealing with straight lines or regular curves I feel irritated when they’re not perfectly straight or round. So that’s what made it “second floor” for me.
I’m not particularly keen on this one but it was fun to experiment.
