Art Techniques | 26 July 2017The Art In Geometry Share article facebook twitter google pinterest Is it possible to combine math and art? Of course! Drawing Geometric shows you how simple geometric shapes can become works of art. Many people also see sacred geometric links in nature. Consider the snowflake, honeycomb’s hexagonal shape, the perfect five-point star shape in a papaya, the almost otherworldly, fractal-like shape of a Romanesque cauliflower, and the spiral of a nautilus shell. Even a slice of orange is a circle divided into a number of triangular wedges. Once you start to look, you’ll see that geometry, art, and beauty are everywhere. I hope this brief exploration of some of the—very few—ways geometry and art grace our lives will inspire you as you start to draw geometrically! Sea Horse Draw a large square with its two diagonals like an X. Draw another smaller square whose diagonal is one of the sides of the original square. (This square will be rotated.) Repeat this process for the secondary square. And repeat, repeat, and repeat with increasingly smaller, spiraling squares. Color all the results! Arise Draw a simple angular shape like a triangle. Choose one corner. Divide the triangle into seven equal parts. Mark those evenly spaced spots, and use them to draw a fan-like pattern of lines to the chosen corner. Color with a gradient of stunning hues! Flux Draw several adjoining equilateral triangles. Allow the edges to align, but shift them so that the next triangle starts at the midpoint of the base of the previous one. When adding color, combining filled shapes with outline shapes. Four Months Draw circles on a square grid. Color the background of the grid a single color. Fill in the circles with one of two additional colors, or draw a diameter line in some of the circles, and fill one half of the circle with one color and the other half with another. Vary the pattern throughout. Tides Draw quarter-circles on a square grid. Point them to the right top and fill them with one color. Or point them to the left bottom and fill them with a different color. Or point them in both directions in one grid cell, and fill in the overlap with a third color! You can even do all three, like you see here! Galaxy Place pen into hole on small circle and move pen towards the sharp lips of the small circle.
