Achromatic Master Study

Last semester (Fall 09) Fashion Studies Major Catherine Frakes impressed our Color Theory class with her Achromatic Master Study. The assignment was to choose a SIMPLE composition with clearly defined color relationships, then create an achromatic version of the piece using collage and paint respectively on either half of the page. She choose Hokusai’s “Wave” Not simple…Take a look!
