The effect of this composition is complex, but it’s kind of fun to see how basic it is when you see the pattern, which might spark ideas for how you could mix it up and make it even more interesting. Just two fabrics in a block can create a dizzying, swirling effect when a creative foundation is involved. Just the way the shapes and colors interact is enough to twist the brain! Come into the center of this storm and see how simple it can be to make.
