Color & Composition: Achromatic


I had plenty of black and white fabrics on hand to do this exercise with real fabric. However, some of it had been cut into diamonds for my tumbling block quilt, so I had to do some piecing in order to keep from having to drive 30 miles to the closest quilt shop that carries a good supply of black and white fabrics. Again, I didn't read the part about making a focal point of the extreme ends of the value scale, and I think that if I had, the results might be a touch more interesting. However, the strong values in the left foreground provides a focal point of its own, don't you think?
