COLORS AND PATTERNS

While researching patterns from various time periods for a client project, I came across the work of the Irish artist Patrick Scott (1921–2014). Trained as an architect, he did not become a full-time artist until 1960. In his gold paintings, Scott incorporated geometrical forms in gold leaf against a pale tempura background.

It was a painting from the 1960s that caught my eye and made me want to experiment with the shapes and colors, the colors being mixed from Pantone’s Color of the Year 2015 pairings.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][mk_padding_divider size=”80″][mk_image src=”http://holtermann.design/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/patric-scott-60s.png” image_width=”800″ image_height=”350″ crop=”false” svg=”false” lightbox=”false” frame_style=”simple” target=”_self” caption_location=”outside-image” align=”center” margin_bottom=”10″ title=”A 1960s painting by Patrick Scott”][mk_padding_divider size=”40″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][mk_padding_divider size=”40″][vc_column_text disable_pattern=”true” align=”left” margin_bottom=”0″]
