Piet Mondrian is a famous abstract painter.  We looked at how some of his work seemed to evolve.  Here are some images that inspired our work.


First we used a photograph of a tree and traced the 'negative spaces' (the shapes made by the spaces between the branches)- inspired by Mondrian's work in Fig.1 and Fig.2.

Then we replaced these shapes with rectangles. Like Fig.3 and Fig.4.

After that we used the primary colours - red, yellow and blue to shade some of the rectangles.

We displayed them like stained-glass windows...

Finally we created some of our own paintings based on Mondrian's most famous style (Fig.5).  We used mainly primary colours but also some secondary colours.
