Playing with primary colours

This is, by far, my favourite mosaic I’ve done so far. Have I said that before? Well, it is (for the time being). I really really love it. There’s just something so simple about it. Clean and elementary.

Art-savvy readers will already have noted that it was inspired by the art of Piet Mondrian. However, art-savvy I am not. I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t really know anything about art. Not history, not composition, not technique, not styles, nothing. In fact, I discovered Mondrian by way of an amazing British television show, Hustle. I don’t want to say too much about this one – I think it’s better left to speak for itself. Enjoy!

      Thanks for the comment, Odette! Yes, this piece seems to be a crowd-pleaser :-)
