Zen Colouring Contest #27 - || Woven Geometry || - A chance to WIN SBD by colouring a weekly pattern!



Hey Steemians!

Week 27 of #zencolouringcontest starts now!

Each week I will provide a stencil to be coloured in with no restrictions on the medium used, with a chance to win 45% of this posts payout and the weeks' donations for 1st place.

To add a little twist and interaction within the community, there will be a featured colour each week, picked at random from entrant's choices. This colour must be used in some way in your interpretation (use as little or as much of the featured colour as you like).


The featured colour this week is Fuchsia
Below is a screen capture of the random picker's selection:
(with example shades of the colour)

This week the stencil is inspired by geometric shapes, straight lines and weaves. I wanted to create a mix of simplicity and complexity combined together, all while highlighting squares and straight edges!

Nice Gif of all of our entries from #26.
Here is my entry.


Suggestion for next contest:


I love the use of yellow to create relief from the fuchsia. The shading of the yellow sections paired with the subtle animation inside the center of the design gives the image a glimmering jewel effect. The dark shading around the outer edge creates a nice depth!

Thanks for your participation and support to the #zencolouringcontest!
