Step 26 of 28: Using Main Color #1 for coloring In 1/3 of the "kite" tiles


Pick 3 contrasting colors. Let's call them "main colors #1, #2, and #3."

In this step, use only "main color #1" to color-in 1/3 of the kite-shaped tiles in your art. In the photo, I used RED as "main color #1." Which color will you use as your "main color #1"?

Your "main color #1" tiles should be arranged in rings of 6, like the 6 sides of hexagons. That's 6 around the sides, and 4 in the middle. To see what I mean, look at the photo on this page. Can you see rings of 6 red kite-shaped tiles? Can you see 4 in the middle of each ring?

A Hexagon.
