So I signed up for Judi Warren Blaydon's class hosted by YHQG.
In a few words Judi explained:
Colour gets the credit and value does the work.
First we sorted our fabrics into darks, middle values and lights.
We all got the same geometric block template and worked on diverse solutions to express our own style.
- The beginning. Values refers to the lightness or darkness of a certain area.
Here I exchanged different prints to make it more interesting. They still read as lights and darks.
