Triptych: a series of 3 paintings or carved panels intended to be displayed together ***Originated in Ancient Rome, triptychs became a popular form of altar pieces for Early Christian churches
In modern art, you can use any media to create a triptych, including painting, drawing, relief carving, collages, photography, graphic design, etc…
UNITY: should be applied to triptych That means that all panels have to share some properties: color scheme, repeated elements or variations of elements, common theme, background or anything that will make these three panels look like they belong together…
STEP 1: Divide Paper into 3 equal sections using pencil and ruler
STEP 3: Unite the three panels together by drawing a few lines across all three of them. A good number is 3. Make them curve too STEP 2: Draw vertical lines with a black sharpie marker. Approximately 7 - 10 vertical lines per panel. (Do not outline the pencil lines - these are the cut lines). (The lines do not have to go all the way down to the bottom edge. You can brake some of the lines.)
STEP 4: Now work at drawing one panel at a time. Draw short horizontal lines (straight and curved) between 2, 3, 4 or 5 STEP 5: Cut Panels & Pick a DOMINANT COLOR (I chose blue-green in this example). *Use this color for all 3 panels. So mix plenty of it.
MONOCHROMATIC COLOR SCHEME *Dominant color that you mixed plus Black and White!!!
COMPLIMENTARY COLOR SCHEME **Mix an opposite color & paint in the sections of different values of the two complimentary colors I used: blue-green and red-orange
LAST PANEL: You can pick any of the color schemes, but you have to use your dominant color as one of the colors. For example: analogous color scheme triadic (split 1)triadic (split 2)triadic (split 3)
TRIADIC COLOR SCHEME I chose 2-split triadic color scheme: blue-green, yellow, and purple
Retrace your Black Sharpie Lines, you are DONE!
