Pinwheels 3

Lesson two: experiment with value studies.

I added a couple of triangles along the sides of this block because I thought the piece was too big and then started to colour using black, white and three shades of grey.

Option 1
I don't like this much. It seems all over the place.

Option 2
This is ok, but doesn't scream out 'make me' to me.
Option 3
I like this one because the shapes seem to float on the dark background. The pinwheel in the centre seems to be more active, as if it had caused the other shapes to shatter. But hey, that's just me!

I see what you mean - once you shade them, they lose a lot of the interest. Hmm...
